The Paintbrush

The Magic Paintbrush. Bluetooth keypad. A Chinese Folktale. Once upon a time, there was a young man called Ma Liang. He was poor and kind and liked drawing so much that he drew pictures everywhere. One night, he dreamed that an old man gave him a magic paintbrush and asked him to use it to help poor people. When he woke up, he found the magic paintbrush on his. Established in 2018. We opened the paintbrush in Mid April of 2018, as lifelong and passionate crafters this is a dream come true to provide folks with a relaxing creative space to make dreams come true.
