His first work in Palermo was a Gonfalone (1485) for the Confraternity of Santa Elena in Carlene. He also painted a Santa Cecilia Cathedral of Palermo. Attributed to Quartararo are two painted wood tablets depicting two saints, one of the Saint Margaret, at the Museo Nazionale of the ancient Salvatore Monastery of Palermo. The original condition was poor and they were heavily retouched in later centuries. Also attributed to Quartaro are two wood canvases -now owned by privates- of a St John the Baptists and St James Major.
