Debra Saum, Encinitas Member Since August 2008 Artist Statement As an Animal Intuitve who paints exclusively animals, I have numerous telepathic conversations with the animals I paint. Interspecies communication helps me bring to life the true spirit of every animal in each portrait. My "Talking Art" is designed to spark curiosity in the viewer, igniting a desire for higher learning and a delight in the sentient intelligence of all life.
