Annrika McCavitt was born and brought up in England by her Greek and English parents. Her mother had actually been born in Egypt and raised in Istanbul, and the cosmopolitan nature of her background infused the artists childhood with a richness of foreign climes and exotic ideas. Even the name "Annrika" comes from Greece.
As a child, she was taken by her parents to the great cathedrals, museums and archaeological sites of Europe and she believes that this legacy of appreciation for classical simplicity and love of the human form is conveyed in the vibrant drawings and figure studies she completes now.
Annrika McCavitt studied at the William Morris School of Art and at the Central School of Art and Design in London, where she obtained a BA in textile design. She was granted a travel scholarship by the Royal Society of Arts to study fashion and textile design in Europe, and was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society during her career in that field.
Annrika states: "I enjoy the art of drawing, whether it be an animal, a flower or the human body. My aim is to express the sensual curves and grace of my subject in a way that is tasteful and pleasing to the eye.". She adds: "My main focus in life is my own spiritual evolution and enlightenment. That alone enhances everything I do."
Away from the art world, Annrika McCavitt enjoys the countryside, horse-riding, growing things and developing her ranch in the White Mountains.

We partner with the world's top museums and galleries to bring you exclusive prints of the highest quality. Our teams of designers ensure the colours are accurate, papers are well suited and the best frames are suggested.
In the printing room, artworks are printed on state-of-the-art machines with a team of technicians checking colour and quality every step of the way.
After being cut down to size, our team carefully finish any stray edges, check measurements and prepare the prints for mounting and framing.
We have a team of master framers who work with high-quality, responsibly-sourced wood to create our vast range of framing combinations - each frame is bespoke and made to order for every print.
Our selection of hand-finished frames are painted or stained by hand in a variety of colours, and finished with a layer of wax - the end result is a uniquely crafted, beautiful frame that is made to last.
In this workshop everything comes together - the print, the frame and the glass - in a seamless and stream-lined process.
The artwork is carefully mounted in preparation for framing.
Once mounted, the print is ready to be covered by glass or perspex - a delicate procedure but expertly done with not a fingerprint in sight.
After a final, thorough check, the framed print is ready to be carefully packaged up and shipped to the customer.
For those who order their art as canvas prints, the same amount of attention and care goes into the process. Here, the print is being transferred to a wooden frame.
As with the framed prints, our canvases are all hand-finished in the workshop - a labour of love from start to finish.
