About the Artist: Allison Mattox

My name is Allison Mattox. I graduated two years ago from Southeast Community College with a degree in Criminal Justice. When I was younger, I was always coloring, drawing, and doodling. Throughout high school I kind of lost touch of my artistic side. Now more and more each day I am realizing how much I really enjoy creating art. More recently my passion has become upcycling unordinary items into extraordinary objects.

2011: "Feline and Feathers"

Artwork Interpretation: "Nebraska's Prairie"

My rain barrel design is simply the wildlife and peaceful scenery that can be found on Nebraska's vast prairies. A bobcat basking in the sun while prairie birds weave throughout the tall grasses. With wild flowers reaching up to a beautiful blue Nebraska sky.
