Local Memphis business brightens office with artwork

May 16, 2019

Adding expressive, eye-catching artwork to office spaces is not only a great way to enhance the aesthetics and customer experience, but it also can increase employee productivity. Back in 2010, Dr. Craig Knight and Dr. S. Alexander Haslam, psychology professors at the University of Exeter in England conducted a study titled “Cubicle, Sweet Cubicle.” Their findings showed that employees in an office with art work at a pace approximately 15 percent faster than those without! Impressive, huh?

Many businesses have come to Sue for assistance in this area over the years. Upon her first examination of the workplace, the local Memphis artist usually notices bare, neutral walls with dull, monochromatic paintings or none at all. Livening up your workspace with colorful pieces of art is an easy way to put some pizazz in the office environment.

Take McDonald Murrmann Skin & Laser for example. The newly renovated office space located on Wolf River Boulevard in East Memphis is absolutely stunning. With bright white walls and rich wooden accents, the venue provides a clean, modern feel. Sue worked with Sarah Carpenter, co-founder of the clinic, to select the perfect original abstract paintings to have on display in the lobby, hallways and patient rooms. The engaging hues Sue’s oil on canvas pieces bring new life to the already gorgeous venue, giving visitors the chance to take in all that the colorful artwork brings.
