Marco Mastro, Artistic Director and Inspired Italian
Marco parents, Pasquale Mastro and Linda Pardini Mastro, have roots in Puglia and Tuscany respectively. Marco’s first trip to Italy was in 1995 with his parents. An eye-opening journey, filled with connections to his family’s long history in two regions. His second visit was with The Scheidt Brothers in the Fall of 2004; the historic trip that cemented a strong relationship amongst the cousins and their collective Italian heritage. Marco has since returned to Italy with his wife Korina, visiting new places and old favorites and plans to keep up the tradition, returning with his children.
Marco has always been creative. He has dabbled in architecture, landscaping, photography, fine art, and printing. Marco's designs are seen throughout the Mastro Scheidt brand, from wine label design to the proprietor's mark. His most continuous art project is his home, situated in the historic Tower District of Fresno where he resides with his wife Korina and two boys, Benjamin and Samuel.
In 1997, Marco began his formal career as a graphic designer for the produce packaging industry. Today, Marco is the Art and Creative Director for one of Central California’s leaders in produce box design. Marco graduated with a BA in Art / Graphic Design in 2000 from CSU, Fresno.
