About the artists

Rachael and Debbie Lambin

This featured book sculpture, made by mother-daughter team Debbie and Rachael Lambin, shares their love for the season of apple pies and cooking. The artists, who live and work in Reno, created My Thousand Words to honor and bring books to life through book sculptures. They enjoy combining out-of-the-ordinary, multimedia sculptures that accentuate the fine detailing in their work.

Together, the two look through a book, see its title, understand its story, then develop a sculpture idea that brings the story to life. Pages are taken from the books (two pages for every 20 pages in the book so as not to interfere with the look of the final product). The pages are rolled, folded, and manipulated to form delicate arms, legs, and other elements such as branches for the trees.

Rachael is the primary sculptor while Debbie folds and makes flowers and other added elements. As a team, they work closely to conceive and create their art. Both have been nationally recognized for various competitions. Their work has been featured in media outlets that include Nevada Magazine and KNPB TV’s program ARTEFFECTS. My Thousand Words book sculptures can be found in several wineries in the Napa Valley, as well as at the Nevada Museum of Art, Eyehook Gallery, Elegant Avenue Interiors, and GJ Rhodes in Reno; Artsy Fartsy in Carson City; Mammoth Arts Council in Mammoth Lakes; and Benko Art Gallery in South Lake Tahoe. Rachael is a graduate of the University of Nevada, Reno, and will be entering the UNR School of Medicine, along with her brother John-Henry, this fall.
