This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The following biography courtesy of Michael R. Perez:

Holbrook studied art at Yale University where she received her Bachelors in Fine Arts Degree.  It appears that Holbrook developed a love for the Modernist style of painting early in her life that influenced her work dramatically throughout her life.  Her preferred media was oil paintings and ink drawings.
Her love of art led her to a career in both teaching and administration.  One of her first assignments was at the Colby Junior College in New London, New Hampshire as an art instructor.  After moving to Gainesville, Florida she taught at the University of Florida from 1942 to 1944, and later, at the nearby Center of Modern Art in Micanopy, Florida from 1969 to 1970, where she became Director of Art.  In 1970 she designed exhibitions at the Florida State University during that summer.
She was married to acclaimed artist Hollis Howard Holbrook (1909-1984) and it is believed she met him at Yale University in the early 1930s.  Although Hollis's career was more centered around WPA and commissioned works, they did share the love of teaching art; some of their teaching assignments coincided at the same institutions.   
She was known to have exhibited at the Butler Institute of Art in 1952, at the Patronato Belles Artes y Museum Nacional, Havana, Cuba in 1956, at the Columbia Museum of Art in Columbia, South Carolina in 1959, at the Purdue Small Painting Show, Lafayette, Indiana in 1964, and at the Ball State University Annual Exhibition, Muncie, Indiana in 1972.  Holbrook won Second Award at the Harry Rich Competition in Miami, Florida in 1957, and Top Award in 1958, and the Atwater Kent Award at the Society of the Four Arts in Palm Beach, Florida in 1966.    
Her work is represented at the Georgia Museum of Art located at the University of Georgia, as well as many other prestigious public and private collections.
