My name is Tim Trudgeon but most people call me Trudge. I was born in November of 1947 in upstate New York. My family settled in Charlottesville, VA when I was in high school and they remain there to this day. I, however, joined the US Army after two years of college, completing 61/2 years. After that I was hired by the FAA and after moving around some, ended up in North Carolina. My wife of 46 years and I raised our two daughters in the Hickory area. After moving to Wake Forest, NC, I retired after 27 years in the FAA and we moved to Mocksville in Davie County to be closer to our kids and grandkids. I spend most of my time working with my church and carving. I am active in several carving clubs and also teach wood carving. My studio is in my house and I invite anyone to come visit. I do a lot of commission work so contact me if there is something special that you need.
