Romero utilizes techniques learned of film, digital, fine art, and commercial photography to produce powerful visual imagery that serves both as social commentary and to bring focus on indigenous female perspectives. She painstakingly constructs narrative scenes that use pop cultural references to visually critique common stereotypes of Native women. After winning her first recognition in 2006, Romero has taken awards at major art markets, and since 2012 she has placed every year in both the prestigious Santa Fe Indian Market and the Heard Museum Guild Indian Fair and Market in Phoenix, mostly (but not only) in Photography and Digital Photography categories, among other awards and fellowships.
