From a coders perspective:
Lists are great! They're an easy way to efficiently organize content
um.. only if the content is a LIST. I mean, don't go trying to organize a novel by making it a list of paragraphs... or even chapters ( with their actual content included in the list items! On the other hand, despite the name, a table of contents is a list of chapter titles.
From an art director's point of view, and I cant believe am saying this I am tempted to agree with your client. you have an elegant, clean, easily scannable brochure site . I would strive to keep it that way. If you are worried that the client is not marketing herself to her full potential , you may linking to specific portfolio samples or you could have a DL with some tool tip type effect .. but again that would mean your client would have to supply more content .
Typographically, I would suggest fixing the indent on those bullets so that they are flush with the their headline. Tho I loathe building the lily, you can always style the bullets ( maybe a subtle icon of the logo?)
