About Nicomi Nix


Alchemy and Nature are the base studies and themes in Nicomi ‘Nix’ Turner’s pieces. Her Southern Oregon upbringing and an early interest in alchemy, kindled an infatuation with the study of plants, animals, their symbology and properties.

Using this knowledge and self-taught hand, the pieces created often reflect subject matters pertaining to Religion (specifically Paganism and counter-religious belief), Nature’s Legacy, Alchemy, Fables and Anatomical Deconstructionism.


Nicomi Nix appears in the following Top 10 lists


'California' edition

'Penciled In' edition

Amazing detail and value shading. A wonderful contradiction of beauty versus things that make me shiver. I am very intrigued by the geometric shape of the head scarf. Is it supposed to represent a roof over her head? Protection against the spider? Why is the scarf in her mouth? A good artwork makes me ask questions, and this one has done it!

The picture reminds me of the character Lucy by W.Wordsworth in the poem " The Nature ". Great work.
