Holly Walker received her MFA in ceramics from Louisiana State University, Baton Rouge, Louisiana, and a BFA in painting from Ohio University, Athens, Ohio.

From 1990 – 1995 she was the executive director of Watershed Center for the Ceramic Arts in Edgecomb, Maine, and has taught at Haystack Mountain School of Crafts, Deer Isle, Maine, and at Penland School of Crafts in Penland, North Carolina. Her work has been shown widely across the United States, most recently at the 2013 NCECA exhibition Dwelling on the Gulf: Ceramic Artists Respond to the Architecture of Galveston.
