Naranjo is a contemporary Tewa potter from the Pueblo best known for its potters, Santa Clara. Her grandmother, mother, and aunts, are all world-renowned for their pottery. Naranjo’s work blends contemporary images carved with an Exacto knife onto traditionally-made pottery. Her whimsical designs of women, which she calls "pueblo girls," and animals, are common themes in her work. She won best in show at the 2007 Eiteljorg's Indian Market and participates in the Santa Fe Indian Market, winning first prize in pottery at the 2011 Market. Naranjo was also an artist-in-residence at the Eiteljorg Museum of American Indians and Western Art
