Mark Strickland’s A Half-Century Exploration of the Human Form will be on exhibition at Lyd & Mo Photography Studio and Art Gallery from December 2, 2023, through February, 2024. Lyd & Mo Photography is located at 27 North Mentor Avenue in Pasadena.  

Mark Strickland, a distinguished artist with an illustrious career spanning five decades, unveils the profound intersection of the human body and mind in his artistic oeuvre. His work transcends mere aesthetics, delving into the intricacies of the human condition and the profound spectrum of human suffering. This revelation comes from none other than acclaimed art critic Peter Clothier, who notes, "Strickland's art is a captivating exploration not only of the human body but also of the depths of the human mind and the broader tapestry of our shared human experience."

From John Burt Leadership: "Executive coaching may be regarded differently by different people.  While there may still be some people for whom the concept of “coaching” may carry connotations of remediation, for the most part, this outdated idea has fallen by the wayside.  Executive coaching is assisting top executives, managers, and other identified leaders to perform, learn, stay healthy and balanced, and effectively guide their teams to successfully reach desired goals and exceed individual and corporate expectations. Enabling leaders to unlock and unleash their full-potential so they bring greater value and abundance to the people and entities they serve.
