Mouse Island Photography has four specialties: Weddings, Portraits, Commercial and Events. Though each studio requires a slightly different approach, our dedication to giving every client the CREATIVE Experience remains constant.

We are designers and creative consultants who work with freelancers, entrepreneurs, and business executives to best express their personal or corporate brand. Mouse Island Design balances your business objectives with the practical and emotional needs of the clients you serve. From print to web, we absolutely believe that functional design can, and should, be beautiful too. 

Rowena McPherson searches for the soul of an image and attempts to apply it to paper or canvas, capturing it in a meaningful and personal way. From landscapes to abstracts, animals to portraits, you can choose an original work or have one commissioned. Working in charcoal, graphite, pastel, acrylic, or watercolor, each piece of art is unique and created to last.

Everything You Need In One Place

Fresh ideas, another set of eyes, a sounding board for new concepts… Mouse Island is the place to be.

The candid photojournalistic style Mouse Island Photography has become known for captures you at the moment. We want our clients to not only see their images but be able to experience their special time over and over again. The result is bright and clean color images that contrast and complement our signature black and whites.

Artwork & Illustration

Rowena McPherson finds inspiration everywhere—music, poems, books, scents, textures, photos… It is constant and endless. Whether a personal composition, commissioned artwork, hand-drawn logo, or book illustration, the trick is deciding what is important and what should be stripped away to find the true spirit of the piece.
