BiographyEdit

Born in Ørholm north of Copenhagen, she was the daughter of the army officer and politician Anton Frederik Tscherning (1795–1874). Her sister, Anthonore Christensen, (1849–1926) was also a flower painter. She studied and painted wild flowers and weeds, together with other flowers she found, possibly inspired by her mother, Eleonore Christine Lützow (1817–1890), who was also a painter. She taught flower painting until ca. 1879.[2][3] In 1879, she married the physician Axel Ulrik (1846–1930). After her marriage she continued to paint although she no longer exhibited. She died in Copenhagen.[2]
