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.

 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.

To learn more about my techniques and processes do check my accounts on Facebook and Instagram  

 

My original handprinted linocuts are available to purchase in my shop 

Below you'll find a selection of original pieces (most of them made during the lockdown) that I'm offering, at discounted prices, through the Artist Support Pledge - a great project started by an artist Matthew Burrows back in March. It has now grown into a global movement helping thousands of self-employed artists (like myself) to sell their work during the pandemic, with the galleries closed and shows cancelled.  The rules of the pledge are simple: I offer my art for sale (under £200) and, once I reach £1000 I spend £200  to support another artist by buying their work.
