Louise Crow was born on September 14, 1891 in Seattle, Washington. In 1914 she attended William Chases summer school in Carmel, California. She later studied at the San Francisco Institute of Art and the Cincinnati Art Academy under Frank Duveneck. She studied at the National Academy of Design in New York and traveled and studied in Santa Fe, New Mexico from 1918-1921. From 1921-1925 she studied in France, Italy and Spain. She then lived in Washington, D.C, before returning to Seattle. Crow later spent time in San Francisco and Santa Fe.

Louise Crow worked in oils and watercolors with a wide variety of subjects including landscapes abroad and portraits, mountains and seascapes. Much of her work had California and Southwest themes.
