Welcome to the Contemporary Fine Artist Group

Here you will meet four artists with unique stories and styles.

Our Goal:
Choosing visual art to define the mood of your business is important. Because art is style specific to the collector, the viewer, and the creator, it is not a “one size, one style fits all” decision. Our goal is to offer you a comfortable variety to meet the custom art needs of your business space.

How it Works:
After looking through this brief introduction, choose an artist. Note that the artwork pictured here is just a small example of the artists abilities. You can explore their work more by clicking on the links associated with them. More importantly, contact them directly and let them hear about your space and what you’re looking for. They are not limited by what they have done before. Their creativity is at your service.
Making contact is easy. Our artists are friendly and professional and strive to work with you to create the custom art you want to enhance your business space and make that statement you are anticipating.

Price:
There is no extra fee associated with Contemporary Fine Artist Group.
Each artist is responsible for discussing pricing with the client. Pricing varies due to the size of the art and the time and materials used to create it. Please be clear up front about budgetary considerations.

Meet the Artists

Gail Lloyd

Gail Lloyd offers a custom art experience. She meets directly with business owners, decision-makers, and/or decorators, to acquire a sense of vision in order to satisfy the needs of the corporate space. Determining purpose, color scheme, scale, and desired message to be projected by the abstract or representational art, Gail can then create a truly custom work for the office that fits the feel and branding goals of the business. Clients may request the service of small scale mock- up paintings to get an idea of color schemes and styles before creating larger scale works of art in order to ensure clients will be satisfied with the end result.

Betty Efferson 

 Energetic, spontaneous,and creative describes Betty Efferson’s work. A self-taught national award-winning artist that has been juried into many national exhibitions from New Mexico to New York, Betty has been published in the Pastel Journal.
She believes that abstraction is best avenue for conveying the innermost feelings of expression. Line, color, and shape work together as the dominant elements of a painting without the constraints of realism. The sheer physicality of applying paint to a large canvas is both freeing and powerful. Through the use of various tools, mediums, and colorful bold brush strokes, Betty creates a dimensional surface.
“My objective is to give the viewer the same sense of emotional strength in which I paint. The hope is that my paintings will invoke the feelings of excitement, energy, peace and happiness to the viewer

Kristen Binning

Kristen Binning is a Baton Rouge artist who’s been painting with acrylics for years but only recently started putting many mediums on each canvas. A trip to Italy, visiting St. Mark's Basilica, inspired her to start incorporating glass into her art. She was mesmerized by the way the glass gave the piece translucence, letting the light diffuse through all the colors. This experience made an impression on her artwork, which now all have a consistent theme of metal leaf and glass. Put together, these elements give the illusion of falling or floating.

“I enjoy the freedom of abstract canvases while incorporating glass and natural stones in each piece. Though the colors and patterns are often bold, the overall effect of each canvas is calm cohesion. The art we choose for our environment reflects our own experiences and unites us to each other’s journeys. I'm thrilled that others have found a connection in my art.”

Cheryl Palmer

Cheryl Palmer is a Baton Rouge artist known for her soft peaceful abstracts.

Every space should have that finishing touch, something that ties the room together and makes a statement. A piece of art is the perfect way to do just that!
From the foyer or lobby, to the board room or personal office, the art work on the walls can help to portray the image of the company.

She says, “I will take the time to visit with my clients in order to get to know what they would like the ‘feel’ of the room to be. Sometimes they know exactly what they want, and other times just using key words can spark the inspiration needed in order to create the perfect piece. Just like with home visits, if it is convenient for the client, I will make site visits to the place of business to ensure the scale and colors will work in the space. My clients can be as involved or removed as they are comfortable with during my process, and I welcome both. My ultimate goal is to help create a unique and beautiful environment, with the added bonus of doing what I love to do!”
