Holly grew up four miles from the Connecticut River on farmland in a mid century modern house furnished with original iconic design, with original topographic maps of the Connecticut River and Pioneer Valley as wallpaper made in a sepia blueprints, opposite walls of glass with expansive views of fields and pastures bordered by the Mount Tom range and Mount Holyoke.
Alderman's pioneer region is digital imaging and editing for printing decorative art for scenic walls and fabrics. She developed installations in six countries in over twenty cities with designers and customers over this decade.
At 16, Holly was appointed a teaching assistant in art by a teacher from Bern, who had studied in Paris at École des Beaux-Arts and at Moore College of Art in Philadelphia.

Holly has worked in digital originals and conservation since 2004 including scans and renewal of Mediterranean views in Dufour woodcut wallpaper from Paris, and the Hamlen Chinoiserie masterwork.
At the National Academy Museum Mural Fellowship in New York, chaired by Richard Haas and facilitated by Grace Graupe-Pillard, Alderman began to design digital scenic murals in transparent iconic photo blends of Central Park sculpture and views that became wallpaper, fabric and landscape art.
Alderman developed an informal creative network of digital artists and printers for discovery and collaboration on digital imaging and printing to develop innovations in interior design with fine art photographers, fine art digital printers, architects, interior designers, decorators, artists, conservators, paper hangers, hosts of exhibitions and design events.
