Hi, I'm Manon. I'm a self-taught calligrapher and illustrator and owner of Oh Pretty Paper. I addressed envelopes and designed custom stationery for hundreds of clients and I've taught Modern Calligraphy and Watercolour to lots of lovely people in my studio in Amsterdam. I'm so happy you've found my creative corner of the internet!

I designed these calligraphy and watercolour courses to help you find your creativity. Because I believe that art is the best therapy there is, and that simply creating something is the best way to relax and let go. So get your pens and paintbrushes out to learn calligraphy and watercolour with me. Aaand relaaaax..

Get ready to discover your creativity!

These courses will go live very soon
