Sculpture by daughter in Père-Lachaise

She was born in Paris and became a pupil of Adrien Bonnefoy and later studied under Jules Lefebvre at the Académie Julian.[1] She showed works at the Paris Salon from 1885 and her work Les Chandelles was purchased by the city of Paris in 1896.[1] A portrait she painted of her sister is in the collection of Musée des Beaux-arts de Nantes.[2]

Her painting Les Chandelles was included in the 1905 book Women Painters of the World.[3] Her daughter Marguerite Jeanne Carpentier, a sculptor, made a sculpture of her for the family grave in Père-Lachaise cemetery.
