The world of bronzes has been very good to David. David has had the honor of many commissions including three monuments of John Wayne. This gained him the title of “Authorized Sculptor” for Wayne Enterprises. David was also chosen the Official Sculptor for the “United States Marshals Bicentennial.”


David Manuel, born of Italian descent and raised in Walla Walla, Washington, began his career in art at a very early age. David’s aunt sold his sketches to pilots at a nearby bomber training base. The sketches, selling for a dime each, proved David’s talents at age 3 1/2 years. Later, a first grade teacher recognized David’s talent, encouraging his mother to be supportive. At age nine, David received his first national award, which was judged by Normal Rockwell. David continued his art abilities throughout his school years and as a young adult.

David and his wife Lee were honored with a request from the office of the Oregon Trail Coordinating Council, Oregon Trail Celebration  in 1993. Among many honors this included a monument designed by the artist. This assignment also held the title of “The Official Sculptor for the Oregon Trail.”  In the year 2002, David sculpted what may be recognized as the most complete depictIon of Lewis and Clark.
