By Charlie’s Hand, aptly named, tea fueled, rainbow making and joy filled art!

I’m Charlotte or Charlie (I answer to both!) Trimm, yes that's my real name not a psudonym it's just turned into a very happy coincidence, 5ft 2" tall, size 5 feet with purple hair and better known as 'By Charlie's Hand'.
I live in the South Wales Valleys and create original, handcut papercuts in my little home studio. Alongside this I create digital illustrations that make up a collection of colouring pages, planners, certificates and papercutting templates. I love using colour in my work, rainbows and spectrums feature heavily and I fell into papercutting after graduating from the University of Wales, Newport in 2010. I have a degree in Fine Art and was mainly a painter but after moving home after university I didn't have the space or facilities to create paintings anymore so I turned to papercutting. I had been a long time fan of Rob Ryan and my parents handily had a scalpel stashed away in a kitchen drawer and since then I have barely spent a day without a scalpel in my hand cutting really well placed holes in paper! By Charlie's Hand grew from some really terrible, wobbly and jagged experiments whilst sat at my parents kitchen table into the best full time job anyone could ask for!
I share my home with my boyfriend of 13 years, affectionately known as 'The Trucker' on my social media, and we often spend the time when I'm not furiously cutting, drawing or painting on walking adventures in the gorgeous countryside around our house which is just on the edge of the Brecon Beacons National Park.
