Mina Carlson-Bredberg began her artistic training with two Swedish artists, Kerstin Cardon and Amanda Sidwall. She later moved to Paris and attended the Académie Julian from 1883 to 1887. She exhibited a number of portraits at the Salons of 1887 and 1890 and received honorable mention for a self-portrait at the 1889 Exhibition Universelle. In 1890 she returned to Stockholm and taught at the art school established by Elizabeth Keyser, a friend and classmate at the Académie Julian.
