Selloane was born in KwaZulu Natal eMagabheni, South Africa.
She’s a Visual Artist that specializes in oil painting and performance art. Selloane studied Fine Art at Durban University of Technology. A winner of the 2018 KZN Young Achiever Award in the Visual Arts category in the eThekwini Municipality, she was awarded the 2019 1st Prize at the KZNSA members exhibition, she currently runs figure drawing and conceptual development sessions for creatives in Durban and was appointed as Art Director for NGO Rural Youth Development Foundation SA.

Selloane's body of work draws on links between, cleansing, healing, dislocation and relocation. Her paintings are an attempt to trace and understanding my lineage as a moSotho woman born, raised and still living in KwaZulu-Natal. She brings together an assortment of cultural references, including but not limited to her own seSotho modality.

The stylised figures of women from her dreamscapes infuse popular culture and symbols that explore notions of esoteric knowledge. Red clay/imbovu is used for spiritual and physical purification.

In nguni culture it is used by both men and women in a traditional ceremonies aimed at connecting with ancestors. Her late grandmother had a spiritual gift of healing through prayer and her mother has a gift of premonitions through dreams and prayer. This is her attempt to regain the power of healing through art
