Selina Teece

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.
