Molly Rose Freeman's work is rooted in her love of the living world. Born in Durham, North Carolina, she spent much of her childhood exploring creek beds and shorelines and her own backyard for the colors and shapes that would one day express themselves in her work. She grew up all over the South, and its landscape informs her design sensibility, which is both bold and organic.

She graduated high school from the University of North Carolina School of the Arts with a concentration in Visual Arts then earned her BFA in Creative Writing from UNC-Asheville. After graduating in 2010, she entered the world of public art and has been painting murals ever since. She has painted over fifty murals for clients including W Hotels, Microsoft, The City of Chapel Hill, and Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport.

Molly has exhibited her paintings, drawings and installations widely, and her work is in private collections around the world. Between 2013 and 2016, she was a member of The Creatives Project and Wonderroot Fellowship Program, both based in Atlanta, and was sponsored by the City of Atlanta to attend Hambidge Residency in North Georgia. In 2017, she spent three months at Le Jardin Botanique Residency in Marnay-Sur-Seine, France.

In 2020, Molly began pursuing an interest in textile design and created her own line of blankets, pillows and scarves. She now works with a small, family-owned knitting shop in the US to create heirloom-quality pieces from her original designs, which were recently featured in British Vogue.

Molly has also taught art workshops for many ages, led community mural projects, and consulted for city public art programs. She is an eternal student, and she is excited to share her knowledge and love of art whenever she gets the chance.

Molly currently lives in Cornelius, North Carolina (near Charlotte) with her husband Chris, their son Leo, and their adopted French bulldog Gus.
