Sean is a Fine Art graduate who studied in Carmarthen and at Cardiff College of Art, under Osi Osmond, Paul Beauchamp and Terry Setch. He lives in Cardiff, South Wales and has continued to paint and sketch throughout the nineties and noughties. In 2011, after an unexpected redundancy from his job in an architectural practice, Sean decided to spend more of his time on what he enjoys most, building a fresh portfolio of his strong and colourful paintings. A blog and a website were created ...."Kisbyism" was born.

Graddiodd Sean mewn Celf Cain, ar ol ystudio yng Nghaerfyrddin wedyn Coleg Celf Caerdydd. Mae e'n dal i fyw yng Nghaerdydd a mae e wedi parhau i ddarlunio a pheintio byth ers hynny. Ar ol colli ei swydd yn 2011, penderfynodd e i dreulio mwy o amser yn creu portffolio newydd o baentiadau lliwgar. Lanswyd "Kisbyism".
