Nemu Takahashi is an illustrator/painter born and raised in Tokyo, Japan. She spent the majority of her childhood daydreaming and drawing. Now she is based in Falls Church, VA right outside of Washington DC. She still dreams and draws but now professionally. She has also lived in many different cities outside of Japan and the US such as Chennai (India), London and Moscow. Her exposure to different cultures influenced her unique vision, which shows in her style of work. In the past she worked as a web/graphic designer but returned to getting her hands dirty at her true passion: making art with pens, inks, watercolor, acrylic and oil paintings. Her love of glam/metal/rock music also is a major influence on her creation. She occasionally switches her paintbrush for a sword and fences till she drops.
