Story-telling art of your memories, beautifully evoked
South Island Art is about capturing and celebrating your unique combination of travel stories and home style.
I’m Rowana, and for nearly 20 years I’ve been creating art to match my customers home decor, honing my signature style of stripes and colour into distinct pieces for your home.
Starting with paintings in my teens, to the range of art prints and homeware I now create, every piece begins with three things (a photo, hand-drawn sketch and colour moodboard) to capture the feel of your favourite locations.
Having trained from art school to a degree and profession in Graphic Communication, I know how to combine design, paper and print to create unforgettable visuals that bring your memories to life.
A signature style as individual as your home
My passion for colour and travel means you can count on eye-catching palettes and memorable designs. I choose colours based on those by interior paint brands so that my art adds the perfect finishing touch to your home decor. Pieces can be customised to your style in colour and size, or commissioned to tell your personal story.
My art prints are professionally printed in the UK using Fine Art Trade Guild approved archival inks and paper, so you can be sure they last a lifetime and look as beautiful in decades to come. The Ready-made collection of prints are all limited editions of 20-60 for exclusive art few others will have.
