My goal is to make fine art, and fine art comes from the soul. If you have virtuosity and facility, you can take and create something of significance.

I use zero photography. I have a photographic memory and a complete knowledge of anatomy and physiology, and an interest in grasping the moment of what is happening, not just the outside, but the inside out.

You have to make thousands and thousands of drawings before an illustration is perfected.

I'm always looking for the next challenge.

China is important to the world in that they are a force and on the move. Exposing them to figurative art opens up a potential for artistic expression far greater than anyone would ever have dreamed possible until today. It is this very spirit of the struggle and determination to triumph that inspires creative expression.

I can actually feel the interior body of a dancer. I have the ability to capture a split second... I want you to be hit with whatever the essence is of this sculpture.

Richard MacDonald
These guys are just flying through the air and I'm capturing them in the split second and putting it into a work of art, via clay to the bronze.

Sculpture will last a lot longer than painting.

The greatest success is creating whatever you want without conditions. I don't do commissions unless I really want to, because it's like having a job.

I'm also interested in creating a lasting legacy for collectors because bronze will last for thousands of years so I'm not really selling the art to this particular collector but it is being passed on.

I was headed in the wrong direction. I didn't think I'd make it to 21. My Uncle Chuck saved my life. He was a graphic designer, and he gave me my first sketchbook. In the front, he wrote, 'Wear it like your underwear.'
