Corinne Manches
 was born in London. Her foundation year at Byam Shaw was followed by Art and Design at Goldsmiths College, and later a Graphic Design degree at the Surrey Institute and a PGCE in 2002.
Her career in the creative arts has been multi-disciplined. As a sculptor, photographer, graphic designer and teacher, she has gained exposure through a variety of artistic outlets.  and has showcased at the Gallery, Richard Young Gallery, Kensington. She undertakes commissions, some of which are on the gallery web pages.

Sculpture  Photography  Drawing
Her interest in clay modelling developed through childhood with her artist mother, a great fan of her early works. She sees the world through space, shape and form and can respond to this through sculpture, photography and drawing. Her focus is to capture the essence of the the subject. She greatly admires the works of Auguste Rodin, Ansel Adams, and Henrie Matisse to name but a few.


Recently her passion for pastel and painting work has returned, and this beautiful summer has given the opportunity to work outside on her own compositions of plantlife in the garden and commissions. These include Large planted Urn (pastel), Studio corner (oil), and the Terracotta Warrior (acrylic). 

Past & Present
Corinne has been written up as 'having an enthusiasm and passion for art that is infectious' with her sculptural pieces described as 'tactile and sensuous' curtisward.

Photos
Corinne's current body of work presents the beauty of the female form through the striking contrast between shadow and light. These photographs evoke sensuality through subtlety providing the viewer a glimpse into a private moment in time. This exhibition at The Richard Young Gallery in Kensington in March was received with great enthusiasm and with many sales.
