Naomi McCavitt, a Richmond, Virginia native, is the founder and talent behind Thicket Design. Her extensive background in the fine arts includes a BFA in Painting and Printmaking from Virginia Commonwealth University, and an MFA in Painting from the San Francisco Art Institute. She has exhibited in group shows in Richmond, San Francisco, Miami, and Chicago, and has hosted solo shows in both Seattle and San Francisco. Since earning her Master’s in 2008, she has immersed herself in freelance design and illustration, and has been made one of the few in-house designer’s at World Art Group where she has been creating top-selling designs and paintings since 2014. In 2015 she began creating species and other nature based illustrations for the Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries and is now a contracted employee of the Department. In January of 2017 she decided to go freelance full time, starting Thicket Design for custom Natural History Illustration services and Thicket Sundries for bespoke home decor products featuring her designs as well as a curated selection of antique images. McCavitt is represented by Artist Partner's Illustration Agency in London.
Thicket Design’s aesthetic combines McCavitt’s lifelong infatuations with natural history, antique treasures, American wildlife, and Victorian interiors with her expertise in the entrenched traditions of illustration and classical painting styles. The sophisticated blend of these techniques and themes is the core innovation behind Thicket’s richly harmonious, yet charmingly idiosyncratic design model.
