Lynda Minter Biography

Lynda Minter is a British painter.  Her style  displays the influence of  Kokoschka  for expressiveness and Bomberg for structure.

Lynda’s London paintings are inspired by her walks  along the river and its many seasons.   She draws rapidly having developed a visual shorthand of mark making in her many sketchbooks.

She  approaches  her paintings of landscapes; Wales and Scotland and   Cornwall  with  watercolour  and oil  paint,  drawing  rapidly. Looking at ways of making paintings often involves overlapping patterns, shapes and line, producing spontaneous images within each composition, making it exciting. As well as experiencing them together as one coherent picture.

Method of working

Lynda paints by using different techniques; sometimes using her fingers, end of brushes, rags. Lots of paint,  large household brushes, applying  expressive, spontaneous brushstrokes.   Often painting over images either in acrylic or oils.  Taking risks .  Until the  magical moment  when it gives back an emotional response .

Professor Ken Howard OBE says “Painting is about the hand the heart and the head” and that’s what you get when you see one of Lynda Minter’s paintings”

Financial Times Art critic William Packer has said: “Lynda Minter is a natural painter, her handling of paint rich and free on the surface, and impressively sure in its scope and sweep”.
