Milk art journal is a new, limited series publication of written and visual art works by artist-mothers about motherhood. We have just launched, and will offer more information as it becomes available. For now, check out our Open Call!

It goes without saying that “mommy art” has a lot of baggage, for reasons both good and bad. We’re not here to bask in sentimentality, nor look down our noses at it. What we do want is to engage seriously with the powerful force of a human being who creates both life and art: the artist-mother.


Milk was launched in October 2022 by Katherine Oktober Matthews and is planned for publication starting early 2023 by House of Oktober, based in The Netherlands.
