 Hi, I'm an Edinburgh-based printmaker Masha Tiplady, welcome to my website. 

Here you'll find information about my work, the processes I use, and a selection of original art to browse and buy in my shop .

 I work in printmaking technique called linocut, which involves chiseling a design into a linoleum surface that is then inked with a brayer and produces an image. I hand-print all my linocuts, one by one, using a custom built printing press. That means that there can be slight differences between the prints in the same edition depending on the amount of ink, the pressure I applied etc, making each print unique.

I also make wood engravings by engraving with very sharp finely-pointed tools into a mirror-smooth surface of an end grain block (lemonwood or pear wood). The surface is then inked up and the image is printed onto paper by applying pressure to the back of the paper.
