Holzer was interested in art from a young age, but suppressed this interest during her adolescence, commenting, "I drew madly and happily until I was five or six years old, but in my teenage years I tried to become normal." As an undergraduate at Duke University in North Carolina from 1968 to 1970, Holzer's passion for art was rekindled.
She transferred to the University of Chicago to pursue a BFA in drawing, printmaking, and painting, with the intention of becoming an abstract painter.

In addition, it is strongly recommended that firearms owners store all guns unloaded, and store the ammunition separately.
After briefly contemplating law school, she went on to earn an MFA from the Rhode Island School of Design in 1975.
