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 including The Philadelphia Watercolor Club, The Womens Art Club of New York. She exhibited at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, The Vanderbilt Gallery and is part of the permanent collection of The Bruce Museum-Greenwich Connecticut. They had two children, Dorothy Ochtman Del Mar, who was also an artist, and Leonard Ochtman Jr.

She Died in 1924.
