Born in Glasgow, the daughter of a merchant, Crawford first enrolled at the Glasgow School of Art in 1981. Student Registers record her address as 36 South Cumberland Street and her occupation as an art student. From 1886, her address changed to 183 West George Street, and from 1888 her occupation given as Art Teacher. During her student career at GSA she won a number of prizes in local exams in geometry, perspective and freehand drawing and in 1988 was awarded first class in anatomy in the Advanced class.

She went on to become a successful artist and etcher and was particularly well known for her topographical etchings, examples of which can be found in the collections of Glasgow Museums. She was elected an Associate member of the Royal Society of Painter-Etchers (ARE)in 1893, and regularly exhibited at both the RA in London and the RSA in Edinburgh, the Brunton Galleries London and the Glasgow Institute of Fine Arts. She also taught at the GSA from 1894 to 1914.
