meet Jeannette Parssi

Visual Artist

Residency Term: Spring/Summer 2019

Geoff Davis was Ignite Studio’s inaugural maker-in-residence! He was the first to move into our maker-in-residence studio space, the first to meet and work with HEPL patrons, and the first to share with Ignite users what it looks like to be a professional maker/artist. He is a nationally recognized folk artist and Hamilton County native, who draws from a wide variety of traditional disciplines to create striking carved sculptures and ukuleles. As a recently retired career educator, Geoff also has vast experience facilitating the learning process, which he has put to good use in a variety of programs for patrons in Ignite Studio.
