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.

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.

Unframed prints come in a sturdy mailing tube : please allow 3-15 days.
