About Us

Sketch and Paws is an online boutique featuring a wide variety of illustrated dog-themed gifts, founded by digital artist Whitney Niesz. With 18 years of experience in e-commerce, working for some of the largest retailers and brands such as Amazon and Microsoft, Whitney brings a wealth of expertise to the table. The brand began with one sketch of the paws of Coaly, Whitney's beloved Great Dane, who was memorialized in the original Sketch and Paws logo. Today, Whitney continues to raise two Great Danes, Olive and Odin, while creating new products to expand the rebranded Sketch and Paws storefront.

One of Sketch and Paws' first successful products is the Dog Breed ABC's book, written by Melinda George and designed by Jess Caskey, the book features illustrations by Whitney Niesz. The brand has also launched an all-season, dog-themed greeting card line and playful ABC flashcards, inspired by Whitney's toddler daughter, Harper. In addition to these products, Sketch and Paws also offers toys, prints, gifts, and custom sketches of dogs. The brand is constantly expanding its offerings to cater to dog lovers everywhere.
