Matt Matteo, an artist in Pennsylvania, has contributed the fruits of his creative genius to many of our (Laura and Tom Lagana’s) projects. Matt has an ever-growing body of work that continues to evolve. His paintings and illustrations prove that creativity and talent can flourish anywhere—even in prison.
Many of Matt’s paintings have never been seen by anyone other than his friends and family. With his permission, some of his work is available to view here.
An artist and writer from Derry, Pennsylvania, Matt spent several years pursuing an art degree at Indiana University of Pennsylvania. In prison, he re-connected with his art and has achieved success and a sense of well being by sharing his talent with others. Matt Matteo’s work is featured in:
Chicken Soup for the Prisoner’s Soul
Chicken Soup for the Volunteer’s Soul
Serving Time, Serving Others
Touched by Angels of Mercy
Frontiers of Justice Volume III
