My name is saimi (Aya Takahashi). I'm a traveler and a part-time translator from Osaka, Japan. Before starting my open-ended travel, I studied English in Melbourne, dance in New York, and worked as a graphic designer in Osaka and Berlin. 

To finish my painting as it's my life, I think I've already got plenty of colors: dance, design, languages etc. But what do I want to paint with those? I believe there is something no one else could do but me, something for people. Discovering the "something" is the theme of my travel.
