Sinty (real name Sintija [pron. Cynthia] Jakane) started to paint with watercolour in 2015, but her journey into art world started long before that. She always loved drawing and painting and her profession is graphic designer. Sinty is originally from Latvia, and she has been living in Connemara (West coast of Ireland) for over decade.
