Selena is a Canadian illustrator and comic book artist from Vancouver Island currently living in Toronto. A graduate from the Sequential Arts Program at Toronto’s Max the Mutt Animation School, she is best known for her work on young adult indie comics such as Cobble Hill, publishing with 215 Ink. Susanna Moodie: Roughing It in the Bush was her first full-length graphic novel, based on a story by Carol Shields and published by Second Story Press in 2016. Her illustration work has also been showcased in the Dark Horse anthology The Secret Loves of Geek Girls. Her most recent project is Work For A Million with writer Amanda Deibert.

Work for a Million, from McClelland & Stewart, is described as a “tightly plotted and razor sharp, hard-boiled detective noir stunningly rendered against a 1970s urban backdrop. When Helen Keremos, Private Detective, is hired by a beautiful recording artist who has just won a million dollar lottery prize, her plan for a quiet life on the West Coast is quickly diverted. Vivid historical research into Toronto of the late-1970s and a dazzling cast of familiars and foes are brought to life on the page by Selena in a mixture of full colour and black and white illustrations.”

Selena is also collaborating with an animator for a documentary film about Eve Zaremba’s main character, Helen Keremos, and her groundbreaking work as a writer.
