Marie specializes in all aspects of pottery making; from storytellers to all shapes of pottery. She gathers her own clay from a sacred area within the Jemez Pueblo. Marie mixes, hand coils, shapes, paints, fires outdoors the traditional way, and uses natural colors to paint her pottery. Marie signs her pottery as Marie G. Romero, Jemez.

Marie is related to the following artists: Laura Gachupin, Maxine Toya (daughters), Damian Toya, Camilla Toya, Gordan Foley, Benina Foley (grandchildren), Ponca Fragua, Bertha Gachupin (nieces), and Leonora G. Fragua (sister).
