Granny’s refrigerator is a rotating gallery of scribbles and stick figures by your doodlebug.
But if she’s craving something finer, commission Ronni Wadler to sketch a special likeness of her grand-munchkin.
Working from an assortment of photos, the fine artist interprets your little one’s spirit through soft pencil or charcoal drawings on crisp, white, ecofriendly paper.
Inspired by the loose style of painters like Elizabeth Peyton and David Renfrey, the stylish portraits give your babe the air of a character in a book. Each piece takes about a week to produce.
Wouldn’t want to draw it out.
