We are a group of Brooklyn-based female artists and friends who met at art school in New York. Though we each maintain different approaches towards creating, we formed the Collective with the goal of fostering a supportive, engaging environment for making and exploration.
Emma is a New York City-based fine artist and illustrator. She graduated from Parsons with a BFA degree in Illustration and from Eugene Lang with a BA degree in Screen and Media Studies in 2014. She currently works and resides in Alphabet City.
Hannah is an internationally exhibited artist and illustrator originally from New Jersey. Her work has been honored by American Illustration, the Society of Illustrators, and 3x3 Magazine, and her clients include the New York Times, the Boston Globe, and Bloomsbury Publishing.
A native New Yorker born on Hallow's Eve, Aleen Montchal keeps busy by constantly experimenting with her art making. Currently she writes and illustrates issues of her ghoulish comic Petty Tough. She dreams of one day owning a pumpkin patch.
Steph Tan is a Brooklyn-based illustrator with a penchant for the miniature. Currently she has been dabbling in the exciting and often mind-boggling world of UI/UX, working on interactive interfaces for special exhibits at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. She has a confusing love/hate relationship with pizza and sustains herself on audio entertainment, having worked extensively with both pizzas and podcasts in her professional life.
Pinky Weber is an award-winning illustrator and graphic designer based in—you guessed it—Brooklyn. Along with multiple pieces selected for both Communication Arts and American Illustration, she recently made the pages of Sunday's Boston Globe pretty. Her professional Rolodex includes clients such as Anheuser-Busch (Bud Light), Kellogg's (Pringles), JR Cigars: The World's Largest Cigar Store, American Express, Time Inc., THE WEEK, mental_floss, and Gregorys Coffee. In 2016, Pinky joined forces with Scholastic to build and teach illustration courses for NYC high school students.
