About Us

20 Years

The Creature Works Studio is a custom puppet building and performing company dedicated in producing high quality and memorable characters for any forms of media. Tom Stewart started the company after working in the film industry for 20 years. 

Tom is indigenous and the oldest of seven children. As a young child Tom often created worlds of his own  through drawing comics and the art of puppetry. He was captivated by shows like Hilarious House of Frightenstein, The Great Space Coaster and The Muppet Show. These television series provided Tom a means to escape during some difficult times in life. Tom’s younger brother and sister both had cancer.

Tom began performing puppet shows at church in 1990’s and then in 1995 started to work and volunteer for various puppet companies. He also went to school for Film Production and worked in the film and television industry for years. Tom also spent his summers working at a children’s cancer camp giving back to a community that fostered life skills Tom adopted as a camper.

Presently, Tom is puppet building full time and developing projects that pay ohmage to the entertainment he loved and was impacted by. Check out our latest stinger video for a new series we are working on called “15 Tales”.

How We Create Your
Perfect Puppet

Once we have collected information about your character(s) we divide the work to our different specialists. We have a artist, seamstress and fabricator on hand to assist with the variety of disciplines needed to complete your puppet.

A contract is written up and once agreed upon our work begins.

The entire time we are building your puppet we walk you through the process and collect feedback at every stage. When the puppet is completed we track ship the character to you.
