MY THOUSAND WORDS, book sculptures

.... We bring books to life....     Let US create one for you!  

Nevada residents Debbie and Rachael Lambin, team up as mother and daughter, to create “My Thousand Words”, book sculptures. Pages from the book is carefully removed to create a unique paper sculpture that brings the book to life! Both artists create unique artwork from books and magazines, by repurposing them bringing their story to life. Debbie shapes them through the art of origami while Rachael manipulates the pages to create stunning sculptures. Rachael is known for her “out of the ordinary” multi-medium sculptures, presenting the finest detailing in her work. The love of art has always been the thing that motivates her desires to be all that she can be. Recipients of several national awards have earned them, their works have been in several businesses and residences throughout the U.S. and abroad. Sculptures take any where from days to weeks to complete and range in price from $250.00 and go up from there, depending all on the complexity of the project that we are working on.....
