Carlyn grew up loving the ocean, so much so, that she pursued her degree in Marine Biology. After working a few years with Marine Mammals, she and her husband Steve decided to start a family and raise some mammals of their own. Several years later now, Steve is a successful contractor and Carlyn is a stay at home mother of five, yes, that is right, FIVE children.
The Cirillo family has always loved to travel to different beaches and while walking the shores, they began to collect driftwood. They found beaches filled with driftwood and soon were collecting truck loads full of these wayward trees. The unique beauty of each piece sparked Carlyns creative side and soon this became her creative outlet. It was a perfect way to create while spending time with her precious family.
Her talents include hand crafted mirrors, sea horses, stars, hearts and so much more.
Carlyn began selling her work at local craft fares and boutiques until she became one of the flagship members of the Seaside Gallery and Goods in 2015.
She loves to have a place where she can sell her coastal home décor and be a part of a collective where, she is surrounded by so many talented, energetic and supportive artists.
When Carlyn walks in the room, there is a sense of calm. She runs her business, in an effortless fashion, which shows in her beautiful work and products in her little shop here at Seaside.
We look forward to seeing you.
