Chris Manley is not only an accomplished Artist having been chosen for the RA summer exhibition and has won the 1st prize for the National Exhibition of Carved Birds, but has had successful careers in Trout Farming, Accountancy and the Wine Trade before he was captivated by sculpture and by the contours of living creatures and the way they flow to form a whole. He requests you to enjoy the tactile quality of his work. Most of his larger pieces can be seen in the many cruise liners that ply our waters.
