Neeske Alexander

I'm a multidisciplinary artist based in Cape Town, South Africa. I explore printmaking, narrative illustration and botanical watercolours. Have a look at my Instagram for my latest artworks and projects. My printmaking adventures can be found here. You can reach me at


I have benefited from a long term mentorship under artist Ian Tainton who has trained me in several media including oil painting and printmaking. I practised Korean brush painting while living in South Korea and took part in an art residency in France. I completed an honours degree in illustration and a masters degree in art education at Stellenbosch University focusing on scientific, conceptual and narrative illustration techniques and critical citizenship education.


I host art workshops in and around Cape Town. I love doing this, as it brings together my two great passions (art + education). If you'd like to know when the next workshop is happening, please send me an email. Featured in the image is workshop attendee, Karen Mostert, with her artwork.
