Wayne Sotogi
Melbourne, Australia - Australia
Acrylics - Abstract

Hi all, my name is Wayne Sotogi (pronounced So-tong-ee) and I'm a New Zealander living in Melbourne, Australia with my wife and 2 kids. I come from an artistic family and art has been a part of my life since I was young. I am self taught in every aspect of my art, which includes drawing, photography, painting, digital illustration and graphic design. My computer specialities are Photoshop and Illustrator. Thanks for taking a look. I hope you enjoy my artwork, which is always for sale.

Who is me?
>> I was born in Auckland, New Zealand, on 25 April 1965, the 50th anniversary of the ANZAC landings at Gallipoli, in 1915.

>> I am 44 years old. I used to be younger...

>> Went to Glenfield College on Aucklands North Shore, and Church College New Zealand (an LDS co-ed boarding school) in Hamilton.

>> Married to Frances, with two children, Eden (boy-14) and Grae (girl-10)

>> I am of Samoan/European heritage, hence the strangely pronounced surname.

>> I play piano/keyboard.

>> I have very little interest in sports - unlike the rest of my family...

>> I read a lot. I especially love books (fiction and non-fiction) on anything naval, especially Royal Navy. I also enjoy political and religious histories and wars.

>> I love British comedy!! ("Whatever you do, don't mention the war...")

>> I use Apple Macs. I love my Apple iMac and I have a G3 Blue and White, but I don't mind PC's either. I'm getting used to them.

>> Moved to Melbourne, Australia in 1999 - for a change. It was a good move.

Thank you so much for posting a comment on my profile page, Wayne. Your work are equally impressive too! I like your car design illustrations, especially that Aston Martin DB7, really like how you made the car look polish and shiny, cool. The Cockies drawings are also my favorites! Good work!
