| Art and Lynn Kishiyama moved to the Central Coast of California in 2002 in search of a life-style far from the big cities. They found their dream in the Paso Robles wine country. Their home and farm are 19 acres of paradise amongst the rolling hills and live oaks that comprise much of the Central Coast.
Art grew up in the area and is a graduate of the Cal Poly School of Architecture. In his first 26-year career, he retired as a Colonel in the US Air Force. Art's second career was 15 years with Walt Disney Imagineering, creating and building international theme parks.
Lynn is from Livermore and is a graduate of the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in New York City and the University of Santa Monica. She is an accomplished artist specializing in collages and abstracts featuring hand-made papers of extraordinary colors and textures. Her artwork is a feature on bottles of Olio Nuevo and she is the "signature artist" for all We Olive stores.
