This biography from the Archives of AskART:
A sculptor, Kathleen Crump was known for life-size portraits of horse-race winners and also for portrait busts of prominent persons such as Clarence Darrow, Samuel Gompers and Queen Elizabeth II of England.  When the monarch visited America in 1954, one of her official gifts was a portrait of herself by Kathleen Crump.

During her lifetime, Crump lived in Canada, 1910; Illinois and Wisconsin, 1914-25; Washington, DC, 1926; and Chevy Chase, Maryland.  As a young woman in Canada, she lived on a ranch, and "made sketches and models of horses.  One of these was exhibited at the Royal Academy in London, and purchased by King George V.  She was later commissioned to sculpt and paint the winners of the Kentucky Derby, which are in the collection at the Churchill Downs." (787) 

She attended the Slade Art School in London.
