AMY FLYNN

Amy Flynn is the North Carolina based artist behind Fobots, or found object robots. After over 25 years as a professional illustrator, Amy started making robots to fill the time between illustration jobs. Now, it's her passion, as it combines two of her favorite pastimes; making things and shopping. She scours flea markets, basements, internet auctions, and scrapyards for cool old junk. Amy then solders and bolts the pieces together to create sturdy, one-of-a-kind sculptures, never to be duplicated.

Each Fobot is numbered, with a copper plate on its back bearing the word "FOBOT" and its individual number. We call them butt tags. And, just like the tin man, they all have a metal heart inside.
