A while ago we created this website for an artist, that is image based mostly...few images appear on google search

As you said, the site is mostly image based which can be an issue for many art and photography websites because they tend to lack human readable, descriptive text on the pages. Alt text can help with SEO but it shouldn't be relied upon entirely; it is there for accessibility purposes after all, and it's helpful for it to describe the image "Artwork by xxxx at yyyy featuring zzzz".

Although this isn't a shining example of alt text, this .gov page is a good example of a page that appears highly in results because the page content (including image captions) gives context.
