Meet Andrea, she is the proud owner of Monkey in a Dryer, want to get to know her a little better? You’re in luck, here are some fun facts about Andrea.
Where are you from and what brought you to the Minneapolis area? Originally from Moorhead, MN, I moved to California for some fun in the sun and ended up moving back to Minneapolis, MN to pursue an Art History degree.
Do you have any fun or interesting hobbies? I like to travel around the USA and soon to Europe, and experience the different local cultures. I also enjoy spending time with my dogs, Piper and Louie and going to local music shows with my boyfriend Chris.
How in the heck did you get into screen printing? In 2004, I met a young fella who was printing t-shirts. During that time, I was designing t-shirts so it was a great combo that lead us to open up a screen printing shop.
Do you have a favorite type of screen printing? I really like traditional printing, especially when it features cool artwork.
What is your favorite flavor of ice cream? I’ve always liked peppermint bon bon, but I’m always down for a local exotic from Pump House Creamery, yum!
Who would win in a fight between a taco and a grilled cheese? Grilled Cheese would crush the taco!
If you could be a monkey, what type of monkey would you be? I would be a blue faced monkey. Or, a slow Loris, which isn’t technically a monkey :)…taking in life slowly and spending the time to enjoy it.
