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 linoprints 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, or, more often, just with the back of a wooden spoon. 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.
