Born and raised in Oklahoma, Roberts’ lens-based work approaches temporality, place, and identity during transitional periods. Exploring the performative relationship between image and surface, Roberts addresses change, uncertainty, and resiliency. Her artwork takes the form of still photography as well as moving image, both in video work and as part of immersive, site-specific installations. She has exhibited nationally and internationally and is the recipient of several awards and grants including a University of Wisconsin Arts Institute Award for her MFA work in 2017, a Minnesota State Arts Board Artist Initiative Grant in 2014, and a Fiber Artist Project Grant through the Textile Center of Minnesota in 2014. Roberts received an MFA in Photography and Printmaking from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2017, an MA in Visual Art from Minnesota State University-Mankato in 2013, and a BA in Fine Arts and Journalism from Indiana University-Bloomington in 1988.
