Mark Richards is, in my opinion, one of the finest figure and portrait sculptors in Great Britain.  Combining a comprehensive understanding of sculptural techniques with a rare sensitivity of touch, his work exhibits both cohesive composition and great beauty of form.  Mark is a pleasure to deal with; he combines professional efficiency and responsibility with great warmth and attentiveness.  His natural interest in people is so evidently reflected in his figurative work.  In conclusion, Mark Richards brings renewed vigour to the art of statuary and I would not be surprised were he to equal, if not exceed, the achievements of the finest figure sculptors in the United Kingdom.  Johannes von Stumm.  President RBS 2009-12
