As an introvert, Totten has found solace in art since childhood, immersing herself in drawing and creating. She honed her talents in the arts magnet program at Northwest School of the Arts before earning a Bachelor's in Graphic Design from North Carolina State University.

After building a successful branding and UX design career, Totten transitioned to her personal practice in 2016. She creates simplified illustrations of people, animals, and nature to elevate the beauty of everyday life and aims to bring more art to individuals and the public. Totten has received arts grants for her community-centered initiatives and command of visual storytelling. 

When not in her home studio, Totten is soaking up time with her small family exploring North Carolina and Michigan and probably picking up too many rocks along the way.
