Describe yourself: Who you are and what you're doing?
I'm an artist, who's making silver jewelry, and I'm always looking for new inspirations and directions, in which I can include in my projects.

How did your interest in robots / robotics start?
It was Love that pulled me towards robots ;) I had a healthy (like normal girl) interest in robots; watching films, reading science-fiction novels, and for a long time ago I was also writing sci-fi stories, and so on. When my son wanted to have remote controlled raven, I started to do a more intensively searching for any kind of automatic machines.

I came up with the idea that I could make myself any kind of a moving bird by using materials I know from my work as a jewelry designer, and mixing it with wood, plastic etc. In the beginning I was only looking for old moving toys, puppets and any vintage automats. But later on I found inspiration in kinetic sculptures, bizzare machines, steampunk and cyberpunk gadgets. As an natural consequence of whole this searching, I finally felt romance for ROBOTS;)

What kind of actions needs to be done in the community to increase the interest and the awareness of robots / robotics?
Personally my knowledge in artificial intelligence is not yet so advanced to know what are the needs of today in this topic. But as a mom of two bright boys, I think it would be nice if kids were given an access to knowledge, in a friendly way, so they more easily could make robots by themselves. That would be nice :)
