This is a meaty one, peeps! Suzanne Cruise is an art agent who was once an artist herself. Twenty-two years as an art agent has given her quite bit of insight and she delivers it in this interview. She talks about why her attitude often differs from other agents, and it may just surprise you. She tells you what you absolutely NEED to know as you try to sell your art to manufacturers. Suzanne and her team at Cruise Creative are real pros. I was pleased to learn she DOES open and read her ALL emails. I am sure her box is clogged!! This is a good one to tune into if you want to understand current trends in retail, if you are thinking about showing at a trade show and what one good thing you might add to your portfolio. (Ok, one good thing I think you could add to your portfolio!) This is a detailed interview and it will help you avoid costly mistakes. Give Suzanne a shout out in the comments and let her know what you learned!
