My name is Michelle and my wife, Nicki, and I are the founders of Trotter Trades. We have three beautiful children and want to create a life for our kids where dreams really do come true. We have both been building and creating our whole lives and are lucky enough to have an opportunity to be makers full time.  Nicki is a Red Seal certified Millwright who specializes in welding. She’s the heart (and muscle) behind everything we do. Me, I’m the creator behind Trotter Trades. I’m kind of a jack of all trades who loves to try new things. I have an accounting degree, culinary degree, and have done basically anything you can imagine. The key to our success is always learning, believing in ourselves and having others believe in us. Thanks to everyone who has put their faith in us and allowed us to pursue this dream. Every piece that leaves our shop is handmade and created with pride. I hope you love your custom art as much as we’ve enjoyed making it. Thank you in advance for supporting our dream and helping our little ladies know that anything is possible.
