about & contact

Katie m. Berggren has been cited as the #1 Motherhood Artist in America, and her paintings and prints hang in homes of families in 57+ countries.



Hey there, welcome! I am here to invite YOU to take a sec to think about your moments as a mama. The moments between you and your innocent little one: bits of peace & sweetness, smooching, cuddling… yah, those ones.

When we are too busy rushing from one day to the next ~ 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.

We want so badly for our children to know that they are always loved, always safe and secure. We wish we could freeze at this stage and age, because we can already see and anticipate that soon will come the shock that our baby is no longer a ‘baby’.

We can just stop in the moment and look at her, look at her face, look in her eyes. We can just breathe and see that he is happy, full of love ~ and stopping to sit near him feels really good. I would like to provide to you a reminder to see. To simply refocus and see what is right there with you.

Katie m. BerggrenI hope that you will see yourself and your own moments in my paintings ~ that you will find images that reflect your life and your gentle choices as a mother.

If you are looking for images that look like photos ~ that look exactly like you, you may not be happy here… however, if you are seeking moments of peace and wholeness, images that convey something beyond a photo likeness: a sense of love, warmth, security and connection, then you are in the right place ~ I invite you to find yourself in these motherhood paintings.

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

“I love my collection of your art. It does serve to inspire and remind me,
everyday, of the love I have for my family and the tenderness I strive to express,
even when I’m ready to lose my mind! Love, Laurie”


icecreamOne cool thing that I have noticed as a mother to two bouncy big boys, and a business owner, is that while I have been creating my business for the last 13 years, I have also been crafting the way I am as a mom. Here’s what I have noticed:

The questions I ask other moms, the information, love & inspiration I hope to share and do receive, are all shaping my LIFE, too, besides my business. I find that being a great business owner: responsive, kind, authentic, loyal ~ is jiving with how I want to be as a mom: responsive, kind, authentic… and great. I really like that. It helps me keep my head on straight.

Two of my favorite things (that I really LOVE!!!) are: 1) falling asleep with my whole family in one room, listening to the breathing of my boys in a ‘nest’ on my bedroom floor. And 2) being alone in the studio, painting and creating ~ surrounded by peace, good music and maybe a little dark chocolate. And tea, always tea. I also love carrying my babies around, even though they are not babies anymore (they are 8 & almost 10) and my chiropractor has kindly suggested I stop.

I am really glad you are here. I look forward to learning from you and being inspired by your kindess, stories and photosSend me a note, if you’d like! I hope we can keep in touch

“Even after so many years, and purchasing a few of your pieces,
I still find so much joy in your art. I sometimes come to see your new pieces
or look at the ones I have on my wall and feel my heart filling to the brim.
Thank you so very much for sharing with all of us.” ~ A.K.

thank you to my wonderful collectors

“I can't say enough about this painting. I believe that Katie has a calling to all mothers. She has perfectly depicted me and my four daughters in this print. I know that my girls will one day want this for themselves. Thank you Katie.” ~ Diane in Florida


"Natural Magic" arrived today! I fell in love with it as you posted progress on Facebook, but I have to say that the original far exceeded my expectations. It is breathtakingly beautiful. The subtle detail that is added from the brush strokes and texture just don't come through in a picture. I can't even begin to express how happy it makes my heart to look at your art. The painting has found a home on my piano with the prints I already had. Thank you so much for sharing your gift. ~ Erin in Indiana


“As a mother of three, cosleeper, baby wearer and breast feeder I was immediately drawn to Katie's work. When I came across this painting, it just spoke to my soul. It portrays one of those moments when a snuggle with your child transcends everything and you can feel the love pouring out of your heart, connecting you and your child in an indescribable way. Beautiful piece. “ ~ Kathleen in Pennsylvania
