Holly Alderman home in South Hadley MA
Holly Alderman produces new editions of antique panoramic wallpapers from early 19th century French landscape monochromes to colorful chinoiserie gardens originally hand painted on silk, and now preserved and renewed by innovative digital imaging. Alderman's one of a kind interior installations appear in over twenty cities in six countries, customized for new locations and audiences. She grew up in South Hadley, Massachusetts in the Connecticut Valley surrounded by early iconic modernism on a road of houses designed in 1947-52 with panoramic walls of glass by Bissell Alderman FAIA. Scenic wallpaper brings similar vistas and proportions indoors with distant mountains, tall trees, tall ships, travelers and more. Above, the Aldermans' house; below, two of Holly's French Dufour wallpaper panels captured in scans with Daniel Saccardo of Superior Giclee and renewed in fine custom printing with Wallquest, here shown on exhibit at the New York DDB (D&D) Building fall market.

About Holly Alderman

Alderman’s original art and decor have appeared in a retrospective of symmetry silkscreens at RISD in 2016; also in parks, residences, offices and museums from southern California to Maine, on TOH, Dream House and Today, four decorator show houses, covers of Publishers Weekly, Harvard Magazine and the 600+page best seller Woman's Almanac, 12 How to Handbooks in One.

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 studied art and architectural history and design at Harvard College, became a teaching assistant in design science and organized a national conference.

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.

Alderman's clients include interior designers, owners and architects located in Beverly Hills, Paris, London, Istanbul, Bangkok, Santa Monica, Olympia, Houston, Lake Forest, Manhattan, Georgetown, Charleston SC, Cambridge, Belmont, Marlborough, Dublin, Peterborough, Jaffrey and more.

She taught public mural design and decorative painting and had painted 40 murals in parks with grants from arts councils of Massachusetts, Cambridge and Belmont, residences, offices and museums, and then crossed the digital divide from traditional techniques to layered digital imaging. Alderman has been a speaker about "digital innovations in interior design" at the D&D Building in New York and at the Boston Society of Architects annual conferences. 

She studied history of art and architecture at Harvard College with Rudolph Arnheim, Paul Rotterdam and Mirko. She was a teaching assistant in Visual Studies in Synergetics, the Structure of Ordered Space in Two and Three Dimensions in the Design Science Studio of Arthur Loeb, friend of Buckminster Fuller who wrote the last chapter of his tome, Synergetics. She organized a national Design Science conference at Carpenter Center for Visual Arts designed by Corbusier.

She was a designer and writer of historical walking tours, The Path of the Law from Beacon Hill to Faneuil Hall for the librarian at Suffolk University, and historical exhibitions that toured the Boston Public Library, New York Harvard Club and greater Boston. She was a feature profile writer for local newspapers, Belmont and Cambridge. Her family with three children lived in Harvard Square, Belmont ,and Dublin, New Hampshire.
