My name is Ayumi Takahashi. I was born in China and grew up in Japan. I lived in Thailand, studied at Central Saint Martins in London and graduated from Art Center College of Design. After traveling around the world, I now live in Portland, OR.
Growing up with very artistic parents, I couldn’t help but eventually became an artist myself. I love painting, making three-dimensional work and installations. I also design textile, ceramic and jewelry.
I love humanity, I love culture. I respect all people who try to make this world better, no matter what they do. Be kind, kind and kind. I guess that’s where my ultimate inspiration comes from. And that’s why my work is usually very colorful, child-like, and full of joy.
