Born in Laconia, New Hampshire, she went to New York City in 1886 where
she studied at the Art Students League with Kenyon Cox. In 1891, she
married artist Leonard Ochtman, and they moved to Greenwich,
Connecticut. They acquired fine property they named Greyledge, which
they used in many of their impressionist landscape paintings. They were
active in the Cos Cob Art Association, and in 1912, she and her husband
and others formed the Greenwich Society of Artists. Her painting became
secondary to tending family, but she was a member of the National
Association of Women Artists and several watercolor societies.
