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, danced 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, language. But then what to paint with those? I believe there must be something no one else can do but me in this world. Discovering the "something" is the theme of my travel.
