The development of Selina-Jayne's creative process started very early when it was noticed that she was able to see and represent colour like no other children of the same age. Selina-Jayne's acute sense of colour was developed by relating it to sense of place through art studies to St Ives in Cornwall, Seychelles, Barbados, Mauritius, Hawaii, Antigua, Nevis, St Lucia, Bahamas, Bermuda, New York, Hong Kong and Iceland as well as most Capital Cities throughout Europe. During these trips many galleries were visited and discussions took place with local artists enabling her creative practice to be refined and developed into what it is today.
