Born in San Diego California, and lived in the border city of Tijuana before establishing in Mexico City. Borja studied Industrial Design with a minor in Mexican Folk Art. Her work meets at an intersection of sculpture, public art, and Mexican craft. She incorporates urban and craft elements; papier-mâché, tissue paper, crepe paper, thread, concrete, wood, and cartoneria. The work reflects on urban change, mobility, and cross-culture in high populated environments.
