My Thousand Words book sculptures started as a way of honoring a beloved book that was starting to show a lot of ware and tear and simply too damaged to read one last time! So, it was an easy idea to bring the book to life through its pages from within and create a memorable 3d scene made from the pages of the book.
Daughter Rachael and her mom started to take books, slated for the trash and began repurposing them and making them into art. As the works became more and more known all over Nevada and California, we needed to name our art business. Rachael came up with the name "My Thousand Words" as a spin off of the tag line "A Picture is worth a thousand words" and it was then in 2015 that My Thousand Words was born!
