'Mark Richards brings renewed vigour to the art of public sculpture and 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.'
