Former film and photography set decorator and stylist, Totty studied textiles at St. Martin’ s in the 1970s and 80s. Totty now lives on a hill farm in Cumbria and has recently opened a shop in a shipping container in Penrith’s Brunswick reclamation yard and cafe.

Here you will find paintings, ottomans, decorative antiques, lighting and rugs where she also showcases printmakers, artists and designers.

Now Totty is launching a new venture – her Pomegranate wallpaper inspired by a fragment of French 18th Century Indienne block print cotton. There will be more designs to follow.
