After graduating from San Francisco State University with a degree in art history, Holly moved  to New York  where she developed her talent for graphic design. After quickly climbing the professional ladder of art direction – including rungs at Avon, Christian Dior, David Yurman and Estée Lauder – she moved to London and delivered freelance assignments for major British retailers. Holly returned to the USA but maintained her contacts with both New York and overseas, working freelance and temporary jobs for companies and individuals. Holly now lives with her family in Carmel-by-the-Sea, California where she continues to freelance.
