Angie specializes in handmade storytellers but does not limit her abilities to only do that, she also hand coils friendship pots. She enjoys making the larger storytellers, because she likes the challenge, of putting as many babies on the doll, as she can fit onto it. She signs her pottery as Angie Loretto, Jemez.

Angie is related to the following artists: Lucy Toya, Bea Riley (sisters), Felecia Loretto, and Anita Cajero (nieces).
