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.
