Purveyor of Mythical Creations
I'm Tom, a Midlands based artist. I run my creative company Curious Oddities. I'm a maker of fantastical creatures and magical artefacts. Inspired by fantasy, myths and storytelling, alongside a huge hoard of foraged and found materials, from Victoriana to Vegetation. From these I've created a menagerie of wondrous beasts and objects to scare and delight, all with a unique story to tell.
I'm passionate about collaborating with a wide range of individuals and groups, working with a variety of inspiring materials. Ultimately creating really rewarding, ambitious and imaginative projects. This includes Workshops, Puppeteering, Prop Making, Creature Design and Practical Film Effects.
Please feel free to contact me about commissions, events or workshops. Happy to bring to life your idea or summon up something completely new and magical!
