About West Highland White Terriers
There’s rarely a dull moment with a Westie around. Full of self importance, these cheeky, happy little dogs greet life’s adventures with a twinkle in their eye and a jolly disposition.
They hate to be ignored and their repertoire of shameless tactics for getting attention include the “poor me” stare, the woeful sigh and the pitiful whine. If that fails, they can always fall back on some good old mischief making!
They are a working terrier, at home amongst scree, rocks and cairns. Tireless and brave, the story goes that, in the late 1800s, Donald Malcolm (16th Laird of Poltalloch) owned a reddish brown terrier, that was accidentally mistaken for a fox while hunting game, and shot. As a result, Malcolm decided to develop a white terrier breed, which became known as the "Poltalloch Terrier”, the pre-cursor of the West Highland White.
I make custom vintage style frames for my prints using reclaimed wood, so each frame has its own pattern of knots, dinks, scratches, nail holes, wonky edges and aged patina.
Currently frames are available in reclaimed pine, hand-painted in Old White then lightly distressed and finished with clear wax. Frames are approximately 38 cms (15”) square and are fitted with crystal clear acrylic ‘glass’. They come ready to hang.
These prints also fit into standard frames, such as the Ikea Ribba 52x52 cm square frame, using the included matt/mount of 29x29 cms or any off the shelf 12"x12" box frame (a box style frame will hold the print away from the glass without using a mount).
