Cat Rigdon is a painter and fiber artist based in Dallas, Texas. She grew up before the Iraq War on the island of Cyprus, the island has a strong folk art and naturalism culture which is reflected in Rigdon’s work.
She graduated from Texas State University in 2014 and moved to Dallas as a Decorative Arts Junior Specialist and Cataloger for Heritage Auctions. She left the auction house after a serious head injury to pursue a studio based lifestyle. Her diaristic pieces deal with the continuous coping of being in an environment that does not please, recovering from the brain injury, artifacts from her childhood, as well as her day-to-day life.
Rigdon is currently a studio artist at the Cedars Union in East Dallas.
