Liza Kholodkova says she was tired of spending countless hours drawing the outline of murals, she said

"the fun part is coming up with the idea of what to draw, not tracing it"

So she came up with an idea to eliminate all that time. A robot called Botsy, uses a computer program to tell the robot what kind of outline it should make.

Liza will insert a marker into the slot and it is held into place, she then instructs it on the design and it goes into movement drawing the outline.

Liza says she has been working on this project for two years, and that it can be useful for all types of artist, whether you are a painter, a woodworker or just a DIY person.
