Julie Ferioli's Profile
I'm a mom to 3 amazing boys (19, 16 and 8), wife to a music aficionado, and my days are very full, to say the least. Mermaiden has grown and evolved over the years out of a compulsive need to create and articulate the current of ideas flowing into my head. My sources of inspiration are many, but I can always count on some good channeling from nature, music, something ancient, or a fantastic bit of writing.
For me, creating is an exercise in magic. I find the polarity of weird beauty fascinating, as well as the combination of things dark and light. I don't *do* perfect. The raw organic imperfections in the world are what appeal to me, a self-taught experimentalist.
I start every morning with a cup of strong coffee, bisect the day with dark chocolate, and have been known to enjoy a Guinness or a whiskey-something after dinner…

silk, velvet, opalescent beads, shells, odd but perfect color combinations, things that sparkle, metals, glass, spirals, ancient things, organic elements like bones, skins and feathers, and teeny tiny things
