Selina paints aspects of ‘Awelye’ or women’s business, such as ceremonial body paint designs and images associated with women’s rituals, and jukurrpa or dreaming stories related to ‘Anemangkerr’ or bush tomato/melon.

In traditional Indigenous women’s ceremonies, women use natural pigments such as ochre and charcoal to paint their chest, arms and thighs for Awelye. Similarly, ceremonies are also performed to celebrate the importance of staple bush foods and to encourage the plant’s growth.
