Meet Katie m. Berggren
Katie m. Berggren has been cited as the #1 Motherhood Artist in America, and her paintings and prints hang in homes of families in over 70 countries
“I capture the magnificence of motherhood.
I paint intimate moments that are fleeting, creating honest, emotional and stylized artwork
that allow mothers to savor and celebrate being a mom.”
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.
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. Katie’s artwork hangs in the homes of families in over 70 countries.
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.
