I bought this painting for my sister, who absolutely loves it! I love it too - the colours are so beautiful and I love the abstract, geometrical style. It's now displayed proudly in our flat!
The order was delivered really quickly and came in pretty but sturdy packaging that was 100% recyclable.

When I saw these stunning cards, 5 or 6 other people had that last card pack in their cart. I was lucky enough to purchase them! Sophie sent them immediately, but unfortunately, they were lost in the mail. I just hope that they ended up in someone's hands, and not just lost on their travels from the UK to the US. They look so beautiful, and so many others wanted them, I feel bad to thank that no one got to enjoy Sophie's gorgeous, vibrant art! I hope she make more! Sophie was very kind in our messages and issued a full refund promptly. Thank you, Sophie! I'll definitely be looking for these next winter, and at your other cards!

Great quality, great service, really interesting and unusual winter season design.
Colourful art by an ex-conservator
I'm Sophie and I run this shop.
New Town in the Wood is a translation of the name of the place where I live and work, it's also where I grew up, and where I get most of my inspiration.
I set up New Town in the Wood as an outlet for all the cards I was designing and making for friends and family. I've recently expanded into printed cards, and original artworks.
My background as a museum paper conservator means that I pay a lot of attention to the quality of the materials I use, and their longevity. I use only professional quality paints in my original paintings, and archival inks in my drawings.
The cards I sell here are produced with the help of a London-based laser-cutting company, or printed by a UK-based company. Both use FSC-certified card and paper. Giclee prints are printed in London on archival papers with archival quality inks.
I hope you find what you're looking for in the vast space full of wonderful things that is Etsy.
Atom Printing Ltd
Printing company specialising in giclee and screen printing.
Good Empire Ltd
This company cuts my designs to order.
Printers based in Cornwall that use only FSC certified card.
