Announcement    Welcome! My name is Katie m. Berggren and I am the artist behind ALL of these pieces :) I have been painting motherhood since 2004. My passion is connection and motherhood ~ to capture those fleeting moments and make them timeless. I am a one-woman studio and shop, a wife and mama of two. Thank you for shopping and let me know if you have ANY questions!

I invite YOU to take a second to think about your mama moments. The moments between you and your innocent little one: bits of peace & sweetness, smooching, cuddling… yah, those ones.

It is so easy to get stuck in the rush of the daily grind and miss out on connecting with the ones we love most. Sometimes we lack patience to stop and take a moment to connect instead of rushing through dinner, homework, bath and bedtime.

If you are seeking moments of peace and wholeness, images that convey something beyond a photo likeness: a sense of love, energy, warmth and connection, then you are in the right place ~ I invite you to find yourself in these motherhood paintings. If you are looking for images that look like photos... you may realize that paint can capture an energy that photo-copied paintings often cannot.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Send me a message with questions on size/margins/shapes of prints - or any questions at all! I am always happy to help! Commissioned (custom) original painting requests and wholesale orders are welcomed.

All paper prints are Archival prints ~ printed on premium matte paper with archival inks ~ to last a lifetime! All paper prints have white margins to allow for framing ease. The margins will depend upon the shape and size of the print you choose. More details in each listing, but ALWAYS let me know if you have any questions!


INTERNATIONAL BUYERS, please note: shipping charges paid to the artist for the shipping and handling of the original painting or product does not include charges such as Customs charges & import fees. The buyer is responsible for all Customs charges upon the package arriving in the destination country. There is no way for me to estimate Customs fees in advance and include them in the shipping cost.

About kmberggren

On Etsy since 2008

Katie has been cited as the #1 Motherhood Artist in America. Her artwork hangs in the homes of families in over 70 countries.

As an internationally collected artist, American painter Katie m. Berggren focuses exclusively on painting motherhood and being a mother ~ every day. With a husband and two teenage sons, a busy online store, and commission clients from around the world, she is grateful for her career as an artist and mother. Katie has been cited as the #1 Motherhood Artist in America. Her artwork hangs in the homes of families in over 70 countries.

Growing up as youngest in a family of 4 children, Katie relished time & space to explore through writing, drawing and people-watching. Always interested in the dynamic relationships between those around her, she later narrowed that focus to study the intimacies between mothers and their children.

A mostly self-taught painter, Katie's art career began in high school when she launched a pencil-portrait business.

Graphic design and illustration took her to Central Washington University. After a brief career in graphic design, Katie was drawn to focus exclusively on painting, vowing to paint every day.

Each day Katie strives to balance simple, loving motherhood with the discipline of business and the craft of painting. The resulting stylized and loving paintings reflect intimate moments of motherhood through gentle, whimsical compositions and soothing tones.

“Capturing and releasing are two reasons I paint - to capture a fleeting moment, and to release an emotion. The process of painting allows me to connect with the world around me. But, perhaps most important, it is the way I model to my children the value of following their dreams and exploring their gifts. The process of creating and completing a painting provides a satisfying way to hold life at arm’s length – to lay it down for appreciation and contemplation. The finished paintings feel like bits of my soul brushed across canvas or paper. I paint because I must, and it is my desire that another may connect with the images as well.”

Regardless what life chooses to throw your way, these moments are captured for all eternity. May these gentle celebrations of motherhood inspire you, give you hope, bring you peace, and reassure you that good things are always possible.

I paint because I must, and it is my desire that another may connect with the images as well.
