Jewel Mathieson has been passionate about art and drawing for as long as she can remember. This, coupled with her strong love and empathy of animals, naturally led her on her path to become a professional pet portrait artist. Completely self-taught, Jewel carefully captures the unique, individual personalities of all of her subjects using hundreds of tiny pencil strokes and transforms them into almost living colour.
"Tilda & Allie" by Jewel Mathieson is featured on page 18 of the 2010 Paws For Charity Art Book.
"I couldn't resist being part of this wonderful project that celebrates the special bond between people and animals. I hope my artwork brings much joy to those who need it most." - Jewel
