Elaine Reed has been collecting toy robots for over 30 years. As a painter herself, she appreciates the artistic design & futuristic ideas that robots awaken in people. As a child, television programs like Lost in Space, The Jetsons & Star Trek inspired Reed to dream large and wish for a real robot of her own. Although she doesn’t own any real live robots, some of her best friends are robots. At the University of Michigan Health System, Reed works as a Bedside Artist for the Gifts of Art program and as an artist at the Turner Senior Resource Center. She also volunteers at 826 Michigan in Ann Arbor writing about robots.
