Henriette Amiard was born in Le Havre, France, in 1878. She studied at the Academie Julian in Paris under Benjamin Jean-Joseph Constant and Jules-Joseph Lefebvre. While attending the Academie she met her future husband, American artist George Oberteuffer. George and Henriette moved back to the United States after World War I. The two often exhibited together including an exhibition at the Knoedler Gallery in New York City in 1920. A joint exhibition, which included their son, Karl Oberteuffer, was held at Vose Galleries, Boston, in 1940.

Henriette exhibited at the National Academy of Design, the National Association of Women Artists, and the Salons of America among others. She was an active member of the latter two. After her husband died in 1940 she no longer exhibited, but continued to teach. Critics of her time compared her work to that of Berthe Morisot and Mary Cassatt.

Henriette died in Lexington, Massachusetts, in 1962. A posthumous loan exhibition titled Henriette Amiard Oberteuffer and George Oberteuffer: paintings, watercolors, pastels, and prints, was held at the Dixon Gallery and Gardens, Memphis, Tennessee in 1979.
