EXTREMELY LIMITED QUANTITY - highly collectible, exclusive prints gilded with 24ct GOLD LEAF hand appliquéd for extra texture, depth and striking shimmer quality.
NEXT LEVEL SOPHISTICATION for those who love a touch of glam on their wall.
Humble Beginnings is one of my earliest fine art pieces and without a doubt has been one of my top sellers. The background, painted using water colour technique, was created to enhance the raw beauty of Quail eggs. It has become my signature artwork. The Gold Label edition for this piece was introduced when Erthe was launched. I am blown away by the amount of interest in this edition, hence, some sizes are very limited in stock.
Humble Beginnings was awarded honourable mention in the International Photography Awards (2015) under the category of Fine art photography.
With the success of its first exhibition in 2014, I am extending "The Eggs" series further. “Humble Beginnings” is a highly sought-after photography artwork which adorns the walls of private art collectors and restaurant spaces in Sydney, Australia.
The most popular question people ask me is "Why eggs?"
To me, an egg is very symbolic in food, in life and creation. It’s the beginning of everything that comes to life. It is the most used ingredient in cooking. Its simple form is the perfect contrast of strength and fragility. I used quail eggs because of its mesmerising textures and it’s just delightful how nature can paint itself so beautifully. That’s essentially the whole concept that binds all of my nature shots - which is showing others the beauty of nature that’s often overlooked in our daily lives...
Gold Label - Limited Edition of 50
- An additional layer of 24ct GOLD LEAF is hand gilded over parts of the print. This creates an added texture and depth to the final artwork giving a strikingly glamorous and subtle evocative appearance. The organic approach of hand layering technique makes each print uniquely one of a kind.
- Gold Label Edition prints are extremely limited and are highly collectible which comes with a Certificate Of Authentication, hand signed, numbered and dated.
- Giclée Print on Hahnemühle 100% cotton rag paper 330gsm in matt finish.

Royale & Grande
I love these sizes! It’s mesmerizing and makes a big impact in any home or office space. Having these on your wall would transform the photograph into a statement piece, perfect as a striking standalone (esp. with the shimmer that Gold Label Edition prints produce). Ideal for above the couch, bed, mantelpiece, or in a lobby / reception area in any commercial space. I recommend professional framing for these sizes.
This is my most popular size - many of us would have room for this size. It is fabulous as a standalone piece to hang in your favourite spot. I love leaning this against a wall in hallways, entry or reading nook. You can also use this size as a backdrop, layer it with your plants, vases and blooms or your other favourite trinkets above the mantelpiece. I recommend professional framing for this size.

MUSEUM QUALITY, PROFESSIONALLY FRAMED PRINTS
We value quality and craftsmanship. Our prints are professionally framed in Sydney, by the number one trusted framer of Australia’s top galleries, renown artists and museums. It is important for us to preserve the longevity of your valuable artwork in the highest quality materials.
The Box Frame is a contemporary style where the print is set at the back of the frame, noticeably away from the perspex. This aesthetic gives the artwork real depth on your wall but also helps the eye see through the perspex to the print itself and allows the viewer to appreciate the fine art paper of the print more easily.
It is one of our favourite contemporary frame styles that gives your fine art prints a modern & professional finish.
Erthe frames come with a lifetime manufacturer’s warranty.
Framed or Unframed?
We now ship framed prints worldwide. Unframed prints are great for gifts which allow the recipient some freedom to choose their own frames or for collectors outside of Australia who wants to minimise their shipping costs.
Erthe frames are made from a premium sustainable hardwood timber and a 3mm perspex (less-reflective than normal glass). This will reduce the risk of breakage/damage during shipping, especially for those who are purchasing framed prints outside of Australia.

All frames will arrive with your prints (full bleed - no border) cold mounted. There is 10mm gap from the glass to the artwork; leaving room for the print to ‘breathe’. All frames are sealed at the back with an acid-free specialised framers tape to assist with protection against environmental elements such as condensation, pollution.
