"I love all animals, domestic and wildlife but wolves have been my lifelong passion. The wolf is probably the most misunderstood creature in the world today which is surprising considering they are the ancestors of our much loved and favourite pet dogs. We are becoming more and more aware of the importance wolves play in sustaining our environment and, thankfully, there are now many organisations throughout the world dedicated to not only protecting this endangered species but also to help educate people about the important and valuable role they play in our world."

There is something very primal about the feelings I get when I'm close to a wolf, or dog, that is snarling...the hairs on the back of my neck stand up and the gradual rise of adrenalin is intoxicating - I would never challenge either animal to the point of danger but it is an experience I relish when it comes my way! I wanted to try and evoke that same state in a picture and spent a lot of time studying photographs and videos in order to observe the minute facial gestures used to create the subliminal messages that heighten the sense of danger. Amongst wolves, the combination of lip curling and tongue flicking is a behaviour often exhibited by an Alpha at feeding time if a brave, lower ranking pack member attempts to 'jump the queue'!

In order to emphasise the gravity of the message being conveyed and the prickly, tense atmosphere that such a situation inevitably creates I chose to use white and grey pastels on black board to keep the viewers attention focused - I felt colour would create unwanted distractions. When it was complete, I sat in a small, quiet empty space studying this Alpha's expression and gradually, as my imagination took over, I was rewarded with the primal feelings I relish so much!

About your print

Your unique print will also be signed and numbered by Tracie and delivered securely with a registered Certificate of Authenticity.

Hahnemühle Certificate of Authenticity

Serialised Numerical HologramThe Hahnemühle Certificate of Authenticity is designed to protect the security and exclusivity of each Limited Edition Print and reduce the risk of forgery. This is also the first step of 'Provenance' - where the future history of your Limited Edition Print begins.

As well as containing all the details of your Hand Embellished Limited Edition Print and being personally signed and dated by Tracie, each certificate has a serialised numerical hologram attached to it whilst an identical numerically serialised hologram is fixed directly to the back of the print itself. This combination assures that the Certificate of Authenticity relates directly to that particular print.

The certificates are manufactured to the strict standards and regulations of Europay and Clearstream, the world leaders in forgery resistant printing. The forgery resistant security characteristics found in this system are both visible and invisible in the forms of serial number, Guilloche with relief, rainbow-pressure, watermarks and a special UV signature.

An additional record for each certificate issued is also kept at the Hahnemühle offices and you will be supplied with the necessary information for you to confirm the registry of your print via the Hahnemühle on-line database.
