Announcement    Currently, the money for every sale is going to Perfectly Imperfect Pups (pipsrescue.org). PIPs mission is creating a better world for at-risk dogs, with a focus on those with special needs, by building a community of like-minded people through advocacy, education, fostering and adoption.

Paws B'Cause deSIGNS is a philanthropic shop of unique artwork painted by hand with acrylic paint and markers on wood, or colored pencils on paper (framed). The drawings are perfect as gifts and make colorful and fun wall decor or tabletop displays. There are no two drawings exactly alike and each one has its own special features. The signs are colorful designs of famous quotes, popular sayings, animals, landscapes, automobiles and just about anything else! 100% of sales from every drawing goes directly to rotating animal charities. I have a passion for color and creativity and also for helping animals in need, so this shop is my venture to bring those things together. I hope the drawings make you smile and that you feel rewarded in supporting animal charities with your purchase!

Update: I've really been into colored pencils lately. For those of you familiar with CPs, I use Prismacolor, Polychromos, Caran D'Ache Luminance, and Derwent Chromaflow. I've also started using pouring paint for new abstracts.

    Excellent and exactly what I wanted. She was communicative, sent me a picture of the product for approval/tweaks, and shipped quickly. I'm SUPER happy with this portrait of my little pup.

    Gorgeous custom piece! I had an idea in mind, and Deb made it come to life. The recipient of this gift was blown away! And not only is my piece fabulous, but all the money goes to help animals! Amazing. Will be ordering from Deb in the future…

    Debbie painted this lovely portrait of my nephew's dog, Shaka, from a couple photos I sent her. It's very hard to get good photos with the right lighting to show all the features of a little Shih-tzu with mostly black hair! But Debbie did a great job, and shipped it on time, and very well-packaged. Thank you!

    Debbie made this inspiring painting for my sister, with a personalized version of her motorcycle (a medium-size, matte bronze Harley). My sister is truly an explorer and adventurer, and loved her gift. Thank you, Debbie!

    Debbie's painted our friend's dog, Theo, from a photo I sent her. Our friends were truly surprised and touched by the gift. She did an amazing job of getting SEVEN personalized paintings finished and shipped in time for Christmas, with only 2 weeks' notice. She sent a photo of each one as she finished it, to make sure I liked it.

    Debbie's painting of a school's wonderful therapy dog, Cooper, was perfect (blending features from 2 photos I sent). She did an amazing job of getting SEVEN personalized paintings finished and shipped in time for Christmas, with only 2 weeks' notice. She sent a photo of each one as she finished it, to make sure I liked it.

    Debbie painted our golden doodle Bailey who has more poodle than golden in her (more dignified and curly than our fluffy, crazy golden doodle Biscuit). She did an amazing job of getting SEVEN personalized paintings finished and shipped in time for Christmas, with only 2 weeks' notice. She sent a photo of each one as she finished it, to make sure I liked it. Everyone loved their gifts!

About Paws B'Cause deSIGNS

Art With A Purpose

Paws B'Cause deSIGNS is a philanthropic shop of hand drawn wooden signs with colorful designs of famous quotes, popular sayings, animals, landscapes, automobiles and just about anything else! 100% of sales from the online Etsy store goes to rotating animal charities. Live event sales benefit various designated charities.

Give Me A Sign!

Paws B’Cause deSIGNS is run by singer-songwriter and data scientist Debbie Liske. Debbie started making signs out of re-purposed wood for her DIY wedding in 2015 and has now created well over 1500 drawings. She also creates detailed colored pencil drawings on paper that come packaged in a frame. Debbie feels that each creation is one step closer to helping an animal or person in need. "My goal is to find a home for each drawing so that someone can enjoy them as much as I did in their creation and to support the welfare of those in need."

Custom Designs

You can have your own drawing created by sending in photos of a pet or object of your choice. You can choose between a detailed, framed colored pencil drawing or a more abstract version on wood. Send an email or a message on Etsy for more information.

Available For Charitable Events

We've raised several thousand dollars over the past few years as a vendor at live events. We are happy to attend running races, animal rescue open houses, fund raisers, and an occasional small craft shows upon request. 100% of sales at each charitable event goes to the appropriate charity organization . If it is not a charitable event, the sales would go to animal welfare. We can travel anywhere in NC for live events.

Techniques

All signs are drawn on MDF board using acrylics, alcohol-based markers, or oil-based markers. Colored pencil drawings are on paper and come in a metal frame. Painted abstracts are another style using water based paint on wood. Sizes for the signs can vary from 2x3 inches up to 7x11 or 8.5x11. The pencil drawings can be 8x10 or 11x14. Both styles are covered with a protective coating, but are not water resistant. 3M picture hanging strips work perfectly to turn them into wall décor!

Guaranteed Satisfaction

We want to make sure you are completely satisfied with your art. You are entitled to a full refund if needed, or I can draw you a brand new sign until you get what you like! For customs, I will always show you the final product for approval before purchase and shipping.

Thanks so much for visiting the shop!! Hope it makes you smile! :-)

    I love drawing for a cause, I love color, and I love animals. But what really makes me happy is helping someone smile - whether it be from the art itself, or the fact that it helps to save an animal.
