Selina went to primary school at Stirling Station in the north Utopia region near Tennant Creek – her mother's homelands. Like her sisters and brothers, Selina was sent to boarding school in Darwin as no secondary schooling was available in Tennant Creek, Selina currently resides in Darwin, but regularly visits her country.
Selina, her sisters and mother come from a long line of desert painters of the contemporary Aboriginal art and dot-dot central desert movement. Her aunties Gloria and Kathleen Petyerre are well-established and renowned artists in Alice Springs.
The Bush Medicine Leaves Dreaming knowledge story is a popular theme of the Numina Sisters. Many women from the Petyarre, Mambitji and Numina family name hold custody of the story and are knowledge keepers of painting series with themes such as Bush Medicine Leaves, Bush Tucker, Seeded, Soakage, Women's Ceremony in common with other skin groups across the vast arid creek beds and red sand of central Australia. Subjects of importance in the theme-series painted are various bush tucker with plant foods including wild berries, plums, onion, yam and seeds.
