Selina is a talented and established artist. She paints the stories of her father's country Antarrengeny in the Utopia region. Her main stories are 'My Country' and 'Spinifex'. 'Spinifex' is a very unique style as Selina uses a fan brush to represent the movement of spinifex.

Selina's mother is Lulu Teece Petyarre who is also a well-known artist. Lulu was involved in the Utopia Women's Batik Group in the 80's. Selina learnt to paint watching her mother when she was very young.

Selina is married to Malcom Club Kngwarreye (both second marriage) and has two children. Malcom's grandmother is Lena Pwerle who is a senior boss woman in Utopia and is on a number of government boards, including the Aboriginal Areas Protection Authority (which protects the sacred sites within the NT) and the Urapuntja council which governs Utopia.

Selina started painting for Mbantua Gallery in 2018.

Description

Selina has painted spinifex that she can find in her country, Antarrengeny, in Utopia region. Spinifex, or aptly named the porcupine grass, is a sharp, pointed grass that is abundant in central Australia.

Selina uses a fan brush to paint spinifex. Dot work represents the seeds of spinifex.

Selina said 'Spinifex is everywhere in Australia. It's Australian thing, important. It's also good bush medicine. We grind spinifex with rocks. Good for itchy. I paint spinifex moving by wind in my country.'
