Marie Romero Cash is a celebrated folk artist and writer in Santa Fe where she has lived most of her life. She has created art for a number churches in the United States and in Mexico, including Stations of the Cross for the Basilica of St. Francis in Santa Fe.


As a writer, her early works focused on research-based books about the culture and churches of Northern New Mexico, along with a memoir about growing up in Santa Fe in the 1950s. A number of years ago she began to write a mysteries series based around Santa Fe featuring Jemimah Hodge, a forensic psychologist. She is currently working on the fifth of the series. The romantic novel about the Pueblo Revolt began as a screenplay over ten years ago when she was a student at Lesley College in Boston. Since then she has developed it into a novel.

Her works of art are in the following collections: Museum of International Folk Art; The Albuquerque Museum; Museum of Spanish Colonial Art; the Smithsonian Institute; The Vatican; The Archdiocese of Santa Fe; The Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center and many private collections.
