biography

Selina Ekins was born in West London. 

She has always had a natural enthusiasm to draw and a keen eye for detail which led her to study art and design.


She studied initially at City of Westminster College,

then went on to study at Falmouth College of Arts

where she gained her degree in Graphic Design.


Her inspiration comes from the natural environment and her love for the outdoors. Her work is multidisciplinary; using textile, printing, photography, visual media and sound within her art, creating her mixed media pieces.


Selina has taught within educational environments and has run small group workshops, she also runs a small textile clothing business, designing her own patterns and hand making garments for the commercial market.
