Tarish Pipkins a.k.a. Jeghetto, was born in Pittsburgh, PA. He is a self taught artist and has been creating art from a very young age.  He moved to North Carolina in 2005 where he launched his career in Puppetry. There, he fine tuned his skills by doing street performances with his puppets. In 2008 he started working with Paperhand Puppet Intervention. He has built puppets and performed in several Paperhand productions.  In 2015, Jeghetto had the pleasure to work with national recording artist, Missy Elliott on her music video, WTF ( Where They From) and the T.V. show,“The Voice” controlling the Pharell puppet and doing some puppet building.  He also worked on the Amazon Echo commercial featuring Missy Elliott and Alec Baldwin as puppets. Tarish is a former teacher at Just Right Academy, a private alternative school for children with special needs.  Puppetry is a High Art.  It’s like composing a symphony in 3D- Jeghetto.
