Shelley grew up on a farm out in regional Western Australia, and as a young child (after falling in love with the movie Walk The Line and Johnny Cash!), Shelley taught herself the guitar and began performing wherever she could. Her love for entertaining people led her to performing in numerous musical theatre shows at school.

Training consistently at Nicholson’s Academy of Screen Acting since early 2019, and coaching with actor/director Myles Pollard and voice coach James Hagan; has only fuelled her love for screen acting. She is often praised by teachers for her strong screen presence, prodigious work ethic, and ability to apply redirection. Blessed with a down-to-earth attitude and country upbringing, Shelley is a versatile and hardworking performer who is a pleasure to work with.
Shelley recently wrapped as a lead in her first feature film, Darkest Age, set for release in 2022.
