Description This young African Elephant is secure in calmly following his mother. Known for their deep family ties and complex social structures, this infant is part of a sophisticated and highly evolved way of life. He represents the hope and renewal for this extremely endangered species.
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.
