Draw in react-canvas-draw to image base 64

I would to pass my draw in react-canvas-draw to image in base 64,
I have thought of:

var imgData = canvas.toDataURL();

but since it is a library ( React-Canvas-Draw, https://www.npmjs.com/package/react-canvas-draw ) what I am using I do not know very well how to implement it.

The library has the getSaveData method but it only serves to restore the data in their components.

getSaveData() returns the drawing’s save-data as a stringified object

I would appreciate any guidance, thank you very much!

import "./styles.css";
import { useRef } from 'react'
import CanvasDraw from "react-canvas-draw";

export default function App() {

const canvasRef = useRef(null)

const Draw = canvasRef.current;  

 const handleChange =()=> {

  const data = Draw.getSaveData();
  console.log('Draw', Draw)
  console.log('data', data)

  return (
    <div className="App">
      <h2>Save draw to image base 64!</h2>

       ref={ canvasRef }
       onChange={ handleChange }
