Connecting with people from all over the world and showing them a great time is my true passion. I grew up with a Scottish mum and Moroccan dad. A lot of people ask me how they met.

Art-history-tour-guide-amsterdam

Hi I am Selina. I am a New Zealander who now calls the Netherlands home. My background is in Art History, and as fate would have it, my dissertation was on Rembrandt. Fast-forward 10 years, and I am now living amongst the art and architecture that has inspired me since school.

With a background in Museum and Gallery Education at the Auckland Art Gallery, bringing artworks to life through storytelling, and connecting them to our own lives, is what I loves to do.

While I’m is passionate about history and art history, equally important to me is that you have a personal connection through your experience, and maybe have your own transformative moment while exploring something new.
