Palm Springs Artist
John Jerome Olivastro, along with six siblings, was raised in St. Louis, Missouri by two loving and caring parents. As a young boy, John could always be found digging in his grandfather’s drawers of nuts and bolts or his mother’s fabric collections leaving a creative mess in his wake.
Graduating high school at 16, John went off to attend Southern Illinois University at Edwardsville, studying theater costume and set design. After college, he began working as a wardrobe master with several theater groups and ended up at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival. His love of costuming soon transformed into a successful career as a clothing designer and business owner. Settling in Portland, Oregon, John owned and operated 'Three Monkeys', a celebrated retail store that had its doors open for over 23 years.
Now settled '@ the Ranch', located in the Coachella Valley of Southern California, John continues to pursue his creative passions as an artist and designer.
