Based down on the sunny south coast, my background is in the arts, first as an actor then as a writer and producer, which led me to work working as a voice over agent and at TV/film production companies. During this time I worked with artists on various projects for Advertising agencies and television production companies, including a World Cup Nike Commercial, High End content for Jaguar Land Rover and the Re-booted iconic Thunderbirds Are Go.
    Working on projects such as these has given me over 5 years experience with advertising agencies and brands directly, which is where my passion lies. I thrive in being the conduit being the artist and the client, discovering new clients and delivering high end projects.

I graduated from SUNY Oswego with degrees in Economics and Art History, as well as with a minor in Studio Art. I have been honored to be a featured speaker at the New York Conference on Asian Studies (NYCAS) and before that, I have been exhibited in several art galleries in Upstate NY. I love working traditionally with colored pencil and acrylic, but I enjoy the challenge of less familiar mediums as well. I became an artist agent after a few years of managing Enterprise’s largest corporate referral source relationship in the tri-state area. With more than 17,000 rolling clients on a daily basis, I took pride in making sure all of our clients had exceptional experiences with both companies. I’ve brought that same energy to this industry a few years back, where I have enjoyed combining my degrees and experience to deliver seamless intelligent artist management to our ever-growing client and artist base as the Sales Manager of Artistique.

    Vince Verma understands perfectionism. The Devon-born graphic artist, whose work has been exhibited around the world, insists on working painstakingly with pencil; doesn’t keep usual working hours (his photorealist renderings are created through working late into the night for days on end) and is almost mathematical in his intensely detailed approach.

    Verma’s story is fascinating. The artist was raised in Devon by illustrator parents as part of a creative commune and was entirely self-taught. He started drawing from childhood and received his first professional commission at 17. From there he has built an international following for his works. “I’ve been drawing since I can remember,” explains Verma. “I never considered doing anything else. I don’t even see it as a job. I just do, what I do.” Today he works in a remote studio in rural North Yorkshire and at his home apartment in Soho -Manhattan.

    Alice is the lead agent for France for Artistique. She graduated from Emile Cohl’s school of Arts in France with a degree in academic drawing, multimedia and illustration. Alice first worked in the video game industry as a 2D and 3D artist before embracing the book industry as an author and illustrator. Since then, she has worked on dozens of children's books giving her some inside knowledge on every step of creating a book, from knowing how to deal with all the stakeholders in the publishing chain to processing with layouts, designs, narratives or deadlines.

    She has been collaborating with major publishers all around the world for decades, including some of the most famous French historical organizations such as Le château de Versailles and the Gadagne Museum.

    Additionally, Alice has spent the last 10 years teaching illustration and academic drawing in her former arts school in France. This has given her the keys to efficiently assist artists and help them match the requirements to make every project a successful one.

    With a passion for new technologies, 3D, video games, concept art, board games and books in general, Alice is keen on keeping an eye open for new forms of arts, new trends and new talents!

    Being French and an epicurean, she loves meeting with people over a nice lunch or enjoyable drink.

    Her experience in industries such as video games, teaching and managing projects makes her a real asset to help you find the perfect match for your needs, keeping the process smooth and enjoyable.
