Artist bio

Mike Pickett is a self-taught artist, musician and all-round creative soul with a passion for impact.  His art is an evolving exploration of the human soul, wildlife, light, and illustration that takes Mike from one medium or subject to the next. Largely black and white themed, with the occasional splash of colour, his pieces draw inspiration from many sources including individuals from Mike’s everyday life, wildlife and animals, photography, music, philanthropy, the human form and psyche, other artists, travel, and more.



‘Into the Wild’
Belgravia in Bloom 2023
In partnership with Catherine Best
22ND– 29TH May

Belgravia in Bloom is an annual floral art show, coinciding with the RHS Chelsea Flower Show each May. Local shops and brands are invited to showcase their creative skills, get into the seasonal spirit, and compete against one another for the best shopfront display – on Elizabeth Street – one of the prettiest streets in London. To celebrate this year’s theme of ‘Into the Wild’, David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation (DSWF) is delighted to be partnering with the internationally acclaimed luxury jewellery brand, Catherine Best, for this year’s event.

Hosted from Monday 22nd of May to Monday, 29th of May, at their new Elizabeth Street store, visitors can join in celebrating this annual event whilst browsing and purchasing our unique jewellery and wildlife artwork from DSWF’s talented artist community.

The Exhibition is a testament to the efforts of 10 incredible artists, each creating a piece in celebration of ‘Into the Wild’. Artwork from the exhibition is available for purchase with 50% going towards DSWF’s wildlife conservation work, alongside a portion from all sales of Catherine Best jewellery in-store during the week.
