Anna Totten is an illustrator and designer who amplifies heart and humor.

I’ve created experiences for brands, software, print, packaging, and environments. After many years of creating for adults, I’ve turned my focus to all things creative for kids. This includes writing and illustrating stories, art instruction, and community art projects. Helping kids feel seen and heard is some of the best work of all.

I'm a proud introvert who works from my home in North Carolina. My family includes people who only talk in OUTDOOR VOICES and steal my art supplies. They make me laugh a lot and get as excited about amphibians and insects as I do, so it all works out. My favorite thing to be in the whole wide world is curious. I’m glad your curiosity led you to learn a little about me.
