Born in 1981 to Australian and Maltese parents, Selina lives with her family near Sydney, Australia. During her life Selina has found ancient Roman treasure, survived cancer, had knights joust at her wedding, earned a living from her art by age twenty-three, eaten every bizarre and wonderful food put in front of her, written numerous novels and painted hundreds of artworks.
As a child Selina loved to read. Her favourite stories were those of myth and magic, princesses and fairies. She would spend countless hours staring at the illustrations in these books, studying each brush stroke, marvelling that any human hand could create such beauty.
Having always enjoyed drawing, Selina began to create artworks of her own ideas of fantasy inspired by the illustrations in her fairytale books, with goddesses, fairies and enchanted creatures. Soon she was illustrating her RPG characters and games, and then fell in love with comic books, the perfect fusing of art and story.
Selina began pursuing art training more determinedly in high school, when she also had her first attempt at writing a novel and wrote/illustrated a complete comic of her own. She started her art business in 2002, and created and sold a wide range or art and fiction since then. In her spare time, Selina enjoys cooking, gardening, spending time with her husband and daughter, and all things geeky.
She continues to work to improve her art and writing, and create that same magical feel and sense of adventure she knew as a child.
