Early in life, artist Sean Cleary treasured the exploration of Northern California and Florida in a VW camper, where he grew up in the 70’s. After graduating from UC Santa Cruz as surf culture was in full force, he moved to New York City diving into the art world. Sean and his wife Elizabeth raise their daughters, Grace and Scarlett, with a passion for beach life, the arts and their Irish heritage. This evolved to the formation of Cleary Costal, a unique brand celebrating this blend.

After the family began designing products and creating artwork based on these traditions, their name ClearyCo soon became Cleary Coastal at the suggestion of Grace’s classmate. Year round you’ll find them on the beach when they aren't at an Irish Feis or working on new art projects, after all - they are the Clearys.
