About The Artist

Hello and welcome to my online studio!

 My name is Andrea, but you can call me Dre. I'm an illustrator and a graphic designer based in the Highlands of Scotland. I studied in Paris and NYC, having received degrees in International Communications and Graphic Design, respectfully. I also studied in Madrid (earning my TEFL certification) and was an English teacher in Seoul for a short while.

To date however, my proudest achievement is becoming a mother. 

My studio, Monkey and the Giant, was initially named after my two greatest muses: my son (my little monkey) and my husband (the giant who towers over him). The birth of my daughter brought a new monkey into the fold, and graduated my son to 'Giant' status, as it is he who towers over her now. Having recently added a third monkey to the mix, I do wonder if I should update my studio name to Monkeys and the Giants... ;)

 

Inspired wholly by the timeless pleasures of discovery and the playful spirit, my artwork stands at the crossroads of my experience as an artist, graphic designer, teacher, and mother.

My artwork is available as large-format posters, mini-posters, and postcard books. All are also available on a wholesale basis, and I'm happy to discuss the licensing of any of my designs.

At the moment there are new products in the pipeline so make sure to sign up for the newsletter if you'd like to be kept up to date on their release!

In the meantime, thanks for stopping by and checking out my studio! I appreciate it!

Have a nice day!
