      This is definitely one of the most charming works of art I've ever purchased on Etsy! The craftsmanship is stellar with incredible attention to detail. I have been following PickleandFrancois for quite some time on Instagram and have fallen in love with so many of Dena's creations. I was thrilled that I finally had the opportunity to purchase one on Etsy. I am so happy to have this in my collection of art and it makes me so happy every time I look at the adorable little hedgehog & butterfly on my wall! I will certainly cherish this little creation for many years to come. My item arrived in a timely manner and was well packaged. Thank you Dena!

      I wish I could find words to really describe how perfect Pickle and Francois’ fabric art is. They each have unique and incredibly adorable characterization. If my walls could be lined with her art they would be!!

    About the Artist

    Dena Seiferling has lived in Calgary since 1995 – the year she began her education at the Alberta College of Art & Design. She graduated with a BFA and Visual Communications Degree in 1999 and then began her freelance career as an Illustrator. Years later, she began looking for ways to give life to the characters and narratives from her sketchbook in a three dimensional form. This is when she discovered, and fell in love with, the art of needle felting using raw wool and a variety of other materials and reclaimed objects to translate her ideas through sculptures and dioramas. She has branded this artwork under the monacre, Pickle & Francois.

    Dena resides in Calgary with her husband and two children. She enjoys sharing her knowledge at ACAD where she is an instructor.

    My sculptures are carefully created using locally sourced raw wool (through the process of needle felting), reclaimed wood, glass beads, wood, feathers and a variety of other reclaimed materials. Needle felting is a very time consuming process where raw wool is stabbed repeatedly with a barbed needle, to condense the fibers, building the form up as you go.

    Everything you see in my store has been made 100% by me and is a unique piece of art. I will not imitate or replicate any pre-existing artwork by other artists.
