Mary Rose Ragon was born and raised in Western Pennsylvania. She enjoys preserving nature through photography and pressing plant material. Her plant material is harvested at and near her home in Venango County. Mary Rose has been preserving plant material since she was a young girl, still using simple pressers made by her father.
