Our Story 

Paper Brush Studio started as a collaboration between Angela Prevosti and Aafke Mertens in May 2017. They had previously talked about their love for skill-sharing and helping adults find their creative path. The latter, being quite important, since they both entered their professional creative careers through unconventional roads. 

Paper Brush Studio began with workshops in different locations in Amsterdam, until they found the perfect spot at Studio 40D - a mixed creative space, where they now also work from. 

The aim of Paper Brush Studio is to provide accessible creative workshops and courses to adults in Amsterdam. We believe that by taking the time to learn something new, it can help you expand your creativity and reduce stress. Maybe even for some, trigger a new habit of drawing every day!

Angela and Aafke try to combine their different passions, interest and skills to offer a variety of workshops. From Angela's realistic style to Aafke's more edgy and expressive illustrations.
