Born in Sarn, South Wales of Irish parents, Sinnott began his
career as an artist at Cardiff College of Art and Design and the
Royal College of Art in London. Following from his studies he
remained in London throughout the 1970s and 1980s, during this time
he exhibited at leading London galleries such as Anne Berthoud,
Martin Tinney, Angela Flowers, and major galleries internationally
including Jan Turner Gallery, Los Angeles, Roger Ramsey Gallery,
Chicago and Bernard Jacobson, New York. Following from these
exhibitions Sinnott's work was acquired by major collections
including Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, British Council,
Royal College of Art London and the British Museum.
On his return to the Welsh landscape in the 90s his work reaped
new inspiration and continued to reflect ideas of the Baroque and
the Rococo; feeding his continuing fascination with intimate
moments of affection and gesture in human relationships.
