Take A Moment: new large painting, new mini painting
Woven Into My Heart by Katie m. Berggren

This time of year… I won’t lie and say I’m in the holiday spirit, because I’m not, just yet. But I am enjoying the cold outside and the warm inside, the snuggling and reading in front of the fire… and the lovely flowing urge to paint like crazy! Thank you to all who took action […]

Thank You, Free Print, New Mini Painting
Circle Of Calm by Katie m. Berggren

More than anything I just want to THANK YOU for all that you do. For the moments when you bend down to look into your child’s eyes & truly listen. For the moments when you bite your tongue to hold back a sarcastic response, for the moments when you take a breath instead of taking […]

Take A Moment: Compassion for You… and a Mini Adoption Painting
Gentle Gift by Katie m. Berggren

Please, mama, give yourself some slack. Some compassion, some permission to dawdle, to explore, to chill out. Permission to NOT always complete your to-do list, to not always be on-time, to NOT always be the perfect mom, PTA member, wife, friend, employee… Permission to make mistakes. To take a hot shower in the middle of […]

Take A Moment: DeCluttering… and a New Mini Cosleeping Painting
A Couple More Minutes by Katie m. Berggren

Let’s talk clutter… do we realize just *how much* the stuff around us, as innocent as it may seem… can suck away our energy? Not to mention the time of moving, re-shifting, working-around the stuff. If we can just clear ONE space in our home, be it our master bathroom, bedroom, office (even just the […]

Take A Moment: Home OR Work & New Mini Original Painting
Not Forgotten by Katie m. Berggren

Howdy! Here’s something I’ve finally figured out (it took years): When I think about what needs to be vacuumed, cleaned, folded, sorted and put away around the HOME ~ I feel fine and get ready to dig in… When I think about what needs to be packaged, uploaded, designed, painted, photographed or created in the […]

Take A Moment: Baby Is Still Inside & This Week’s Mini Original
Wherever I Go by Katie m. Berggren

Coming across past photos and videos of our children can touch us in a longing sort of way. We wish we could go back to those moments, even just for an hour, to hold those babies again. But then, we look into the eyes of our big kiddos, and we realize… those babies are STILL in there! […]

Take A Moment: Chaos ~ & a new mini painting
Child Of Focus by Katie m. Berggren

Hi there~ Recently, I asked the wise mamas on Facebook how they keep their homes out of Chaos. Here’s the scoop: small cleaning bursts throughout the day vs. a full day of cleaning; minimizing possessions to simplify (my personal fave); meal planning; cleaning one room per day; and also important: lowering our standards ~ sounds […]

“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
