Born in Aberdeen, Scotland, Berthe Des Clayes is the older sister of Alice Des Clayes (1890-1968) and Gertrude Des Clayes (1879-1949). She studied at the Bushey School of Art in England with B. Herkomer and at the Academie Julian in Paris, France with Tony Robert-Fleury and Jules Lefebvre.

She lived in London (1906-1912) and then settled in Montreal in 1912. She spent the year travelling to England and France in 1919-20 before settling in Chorleywood, England until 1931. She then returned to Montreal until 1951. In 1967, she went to live in Devon, England, where she died the following year, at the age of 91.

During her career she won the Jessie Dow Prize twice. She regularly attended the Sp[ring Exhibition held at the Museum of Fine Arts in Montreal and the annual exhibitions of the Royal Academy of Arts of Canada. She illustrated the Canadian landscape in two books: Here and There in Montreal and the Island of Montreal by Charles W. Stokes and Acadia (Nova Scotia) published by the Dominion Atlantic Railway.

Her works can be found in several museum collections: the Musée National des Beaux-Arts du Québec; the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts; the National Art Gallery of Canada in Ottawa; the Art Gallery of Ontario in Toronto; the University of Calgary in Alberta; the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, the National Archives in Canada.
