ruby had a teacher at daycare who is also a skilled artist. "ms. carolyn" often drew pictures of ruby & her classmates that turned out fantastically. carolyn is certainly skilled at capturing the essence of the subject she is drawing.
after ruby's toy story themed party, carolyn was inspired to do a drawing of ruby in her cowgirl jesse costume & she shared it with us. it is so "ruby" (especially the pigtails!) :)
carolyn has an online portfolio of drawings and you can find her other work at http://superstudios.shutterfly.com. she can create drawings from photos, too, & is very reasonably priced. i am searching through photo books to possibly order some works for a few upcoming family events. please take a look at carolyn's portfolio & feel free to contact her if you're interested in having an original piece for yourself!
thank you, carolyn! we love your ability to capture ruby's spirit!
