Holt was born in 1898 in London and studied at Putney Art School, but economic necessity forced her to work for Prudential Assurance Company from 1915-22. Later she attended evening classes at Regent Street Polytechnic in London. She was married to antiques dealer Jacob Mendelson between1923 and 1928, but then met and later married the artist David Bomberg. She spent long periods painting in Spain with Bomberg. After Bomberg’s premature death in 1957 she visited remote and rugged places in Mexico, Turkey, Spain and North Africa where she continued to draw and paint and devoted her later years (with the support of her daughter Dinora Mendelson) promoting Bomberg's achievements. Holt died in London in 1983.
