Shelley Quartermaine is a 19 year-old singer and actress based in Perth, Australia. Despite her young age, one couldn't deny her passion for music, having nurtured it as a child singing to sheep on the back of her Dad's ute and singing along with her elder sister for fun at every opportunity. The musical greats Johnny Cash and Michael Jackson provided early inspiration for Shelley to pick up a guitar, ultimately providing comfort during many nights away at boarding school in Perth!
She has sung across the country, including a live performance for Channel 7's Telethon and in front of a crowd of 40,000 during an AFL match at Optus Stadium. Under the name Shelley Q, she has released three original songs to iTunes and gained air time on Triple J. In early 2019, Shelley was interviewed by Andrea Gibbs on ABC Radio's Saturday Breakfast, giving a live performance of her original song, ‘Australia’ - a catchy country tune articulating the Aussie culture and spirit.
A burgeoning interest in acting led Shelley to complete an intensive 8 week course with Fusion Australia. She won a string of awards and took out a scholarship to attend the National AUSCAAs Showcase in Sydney in December 2018, where she again shone while representing WA in acting, singing and modelling.
Training consistently at Nicholson’s Academy of Screen Acting since early 2019 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.
