Nicci’s work inspired by Emily Dickinson’s poems & letters.

Emily Dickinson looks toward her desire, but denies herself in her poems even so. She speaks to us in the language of the unconscious—in symbols—and has infiltrated the minds of generations of poets since she last put ink to paper. One could say that she haunts us. ~ Nicci Mechler, Artist Statement
