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, blog, and commissioned (custom) painting 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.
A personal note from the artist, Katie m. Berggren:
Welcome to my Online Shop! When you shop here you are buying direct from the artist. I am a wife and a mother of two sons in the USA. I create my sentimental mother and child paintings one by one in my studio, and sell them direct to my many collectors.
Growing up as youngest in a family of 4 children, I relished time & space to explore through writing, drawing and people-watching. Always interested in the dynamic relationships between those around me, I later narrowed that focus to study the sweetness between mothers and their children.
As a mostly self-taught painter, I started my first business in high school when I launched a pencil-portrait business. Graphic design and illustration took me to Central Washington University and after creating and selling art while also owning a graphic design business for 6 years, I chose to focus exclusively on painting in 2008.
Each day I strive to balance being a loving mother and a good businesswoman, while capturing intimate moments of motherhood in paint, with whimsical compositions and soothing colors. I do NOT always find balance :)
There is a daily conflict for a mother of young children. For me it is a challenge that reawakens every morning as I balance my desire to be a patient, graceful mother and at the same time fulfill an instinctive urge to bring forth the creations of my soul and realize my dreams.
Being an artist who works from a home studio is also, perhaps most importantly, the way I model to my children the value of following their dreams and exploring their gifts.
“Capturing and releasing are two reasons I paint.
To capture a fleeting moment, and to release an emotion.
I paint because I must, and I am honored
when my collectors connect with the images as well.”
Regardless what life chooses to throw our way, these gentle and timeless moments are captured for all eternity. May these loving celebrations of motherhood inspire you, give you hope, bring you peace, and reassure you that good things are always possible.
