Our Principles

“No clients...Only partners.” This means not holding back resources. This means being honest and mutually supportive. This means we are partners working towards a mutual goal. In short, we believe that the best art comes not from a bottom line, but from the relationships that inspire them.
— Our Philosophy
One of my great loves is teaching and education. It is from this desire that we gets our tagline, “Where we have no clients, only partners.” To come along side and support the passions of others, to share in one another’s values and experiences is in my opinion the true foundation of creative brilliance.
— Michael Strickland
For you shall go out in joy and be led forth in peace; the mountains and the hills before you shall break forth into singing, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands. Instead of the thorn shall come up the CYPRESS; instead of the brier shall come up the myrtle; and it shall make a name for the LORD, an everlasting sign that shall not be cut off.
— Isaiah 55:12-13
