Katie m. Berggren's Silent Story is a wordless journey of loss and compassion in an art-filled, high-quality book... over 90 heartfelt pages of full color art, finished book size: 7 x 9.5 inches.

Silent Story is a zoomed-back view of how the unexpected ending of a friendship can cause confusion, shame and hurt. Through vulnerable and relatable character artwork, Silent Story takes its character from a state of joy, through loss and pain resulting from a break-up. This book is a hold-able journey through loneliness and confusion, heartbreak and silence... ending with renewed hope, happiness, companionship and contentment. You are not alone.

The pages of Silent Story will bring us out of the dark and visually inspire us as to how our heart may go from broken, to healing, to healed-with-scars and ready for new friendship. Silent Story allows the viewer to recognize their own experience through the artwork, without telling what should be felt or said.

This silent visual narrative of happiness and disappointment has reached collectors’ hearts, and is told through colorful and emotional paintings of a vulnerable subject named The Seeker. The Seeker was first created in 2007 by Katie m. Berggren.

Over the process of sharing The Seeker with you, I've been blown-away by the number of people who have felt her, saw her and wrote to tell me about how The Seeker made them feel:

"I am so drawn towards The Seeker. I feel her emotions so deeply, she is very real and very honest - in her true feelings and vulnerability. Sometimes it's difficult to describe what pain really feels like - the mental type, especially for those of us who feel it very deeply. When I look at her, I know that I am not alone, I know that there are other people that feel life, love, pain and happiness as deeply as I do." ~ M.O.


“This is a beautiful gift you have created for women, that subtle nod/appreciation of the journey we go on... It is an empathetic, compassionate, creative all-knowing interpretation of motherhood. My interpretation of what you were conveying might not be 100% accurate. But it caused me to literally ball my eyes out crying at work, because it touched my heart and gave me goosebumps.” ~ A.O.



“I experienced a whole wide range of emotions looking at each of them and being reminded how many similar experiences we all share throughout life, where the details may differ, but the bigger picture is so similar for so many of us. And it helps to not feel so alone.” ~ M.P.



“When I look at these paintings, I feel like I’m not alone in the way that I sometimes feel…” ~ From the husband of a collector, visiting the studio

Throughout our lives we are all Seekers, in some way and in different ways over time. ‘A Silent Story’ gives you space in each experience of grief and loss to find your words. The healing power of a compassionate, honest and reciprocated all-weather friendship manifests through Katie M. Berggren’s art… as does the pain and heartache of rejection and invalidation of our feelings. Ultimately, we all have scars, and ‘A Silent Story’ reminds us to continue to be hopeful that there is a safe person for all of our dimensions. Tip: I recommend experiencing the book for yourself, then purchasing the audio where Katie walks you through her story in the art, and then spending time with the book again. You will find so much more of your experience on the pages.

I recently buried my baby boy. This is the sweetest little book in tribute to the author’s own child, and I found comfort in knowing I’m not alone in my struggles. The illustrations are beautiful. It was just what I needed to have on my shelf when I want to think about my precious son. ❤️

Beautiful and a must have for grieving parents. Reading just the first few pages, I was brought to tears. I felt like all of my thoughts (ones that I have struggled to put into words myself) were perfectly explained in this book. That art is absolutely breathtaking and I cannot wait to see what else is to come from botht he artitst and author. Thank you Alanna Knobben and Katie Berggren!
