Philly - Pit Bull © Jewel Mathieson      
Jewel Mathieson is a professional pet portrait artist from Nelson, New Zealand. Her distinctive highly detailed style is instantly recognizable, using hundreds of tiny pencil strokes to transform her subjects into almost living colour. Jewel is particularly inspired by the unique personality and character that animals show through their body language and facial expressions, and carefully captures their soul in each of her drawings.

“Philly was a very cherished family member, loving and gentle. I was instantly drawn into his sweet soulful eyes and hoped that I could capture through my art the love and tenderness that these magnificent and often misunderstood dogs possess.” - Jewel
