Selina Kulitja

Selina Kulitja is minyma Anangu, an Aboriginal woman from the Central Desert area of Australia. Part of her childhood was spent in the community of Areyonga before her family returned to their ancestral lands and the community of Kaltukatjara, or Docker River in the Petermann Ranges. Her mother, senor artist, Nyinku Kulitja, has taught her skills through the Tjukurpa, the Law and way of life governing their country. Selina began carving in her own right in the early 1990s. She began painting with Maruku in 2007 and takes inspiration from her sister-in-law, Rene Kulitja. Recently Selina has become an ambassador for Maruku, bringing her people’s art to a wider audience through workshops and exhibitions. Selina also performs a crucial role as a Health Worker in her local community clinic and is an active community and council member.
