Exh 1897-1927

Crompton was born in West Tanfield, Yorkshire and educated in London, studying art at the Westminster School of Art (under William Mouat Loudan) and then in Paris. Among her works were watercolours which included harbour and coastal scenes and still lifes.

From 1897 to 1901 she was exhibiting with SWA, and gave her residence as Kensington Court. Subsequent addresses were in East Clevedon, Somerset (1923) and Fowey, Cornwall (1927).

She is recorded as being a teacher of art, but the location is not known. She was a member of STISA from 1946 through 1952, and it is presumed that during this period she remained in Cornwall.  In 1952 she moved to Nailsworth in Gloucestershire.
