Jessica Pizaña Roberts is a "Spanglish" artist born and raised in El Paso, Texas, borderland to Juarez, Mexico. Her work explores body politics associated with identity and culture. Through the embrace of mimicry and contradiction, her work uncovers the absurdities of social norms. She explores the fluctuation of the body and mind by creating and performing her skin suits. Often times her work humorously showcases sexuality and popular surgical practices with food.

Roberts holds an MFA from New Mexico State University and received her BFA from the University of Texas at El Paso.
