Fallon Shea is a self-described rose devotee and roseologist currently making her life with roses in Southern California as a grower, designer, artist, and writer.

She says that roses found her when she was lost at the age of 19, “tricked her into gardening” then, and have kept her happily under their spell as their devoted student ever since from pruning 10,000 roses in the field, to savoring their tart hips, to incorporating all stages of them into her floral designs and all parts of them into her artwork.
