After returning to Texas, Sellors co-founded The Texas School of Arts in 1932 with Sallie Gillespie and Blanche McVeigh.

Sellors taught art at a number of institutions in the Fort Worth while executing commissions for the Works Progress Administration (WPA). Examples of her work are in the collections of the Dallas Museum of Art.
