Richard burns was born in California and started his career at a very young age. He won his first art competition at the age of eight, and the thrill of his drawing, tiger, which was featured in a local newspaper, sealed his fate as an artist. Throughout his career, Richard excelled in architectural drawing and sculpture, but his real passion is painting. Richard now focuses his energy on drawing romantic cottages and painting.
Richard, in addition to his love of art, is an avid runner and studied at Northern University on a track scholarship with a master of art. After a short stay, he found the 7,000-foot altitude difficult to run and transferred to California state University Northridge. After a long absence, Richard started training on the Master Track again. In August 1996, he won the 1500-meter race of the North American championship. He then won the national 1500m title in August 1997. Then in March 2000, Richard burns set a New world record in Boston, Massachusetts in the 3000-meter race.
