Cat Mailloux, MFAAssistant Professor of Studio Art
Cat Mailloux was born and raised in the heart of the midwest, central Minnesota. She graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire with a B.F.A. in Sculpture and a Certificate in Art Education in 2014. In 2018, she earned her M.F.A. in Sculpture from The Ohio State University.

Having grown up in Minnesota, the "land of 10,000 lakes", I love spending time on the water. I also come from a big family and treasure sitting in the backyard with my mother, siblings, and nieces.I have an affinity for sewing and weaving, and run a community sewing class in my neighborhood at the local recreation center.
Contemporary art and sculpture, intersections of art and faith.
It has been a longstanding desire to work at the intersection of art and faith. Joining Cedarville as a faculty member in studio art is an answer to that prayer. For me, art making is akin to breathing and Christianity is my mother-tongue. It is a privilege to be able to serve in an institution that upholds individuals as image bearers and creators, in a context that seeks to integrate faith into every aspect of daily life.
