About The Artist

Hello and welcome!

 My name is Andrea, but you can call me Dre. I'm 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 TESOL certification) and was an English teacher in Paris and Seoul for a short while.

These days though, I'm mostly a mother. 

This studio name, Monkey and the Giant, embodies the spirit of my family. I affectionately call my children monkeys on a daily basis, whilst my husband and I are the giants that tower over them. Our home is a supportive place where together we explore, discover, learn, and grow.

 

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

These digitally-produced prints are 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.

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

Have a nice day!
