Meet Joanna

Hi there! My name is Joanna Tucker and I am a landscape and nature photographer in South Central Indiana.

I loved all forms of art growing up as a child- drawing, painting, sculpting, photography- but my love for photography took center stage when I was in college. I eventually upgraded my simple point & shoot camera to a Nikon DSLR and began devoting my spare time in honing my craft, capturing the beauty I find in the world, and sharing my work with others.

Since 2008, I have participated in a variety of photography competitions and enjoy sharing my work at local art events. Some awards, features, and displays I have been fortunate enough to receive and partake in include:

On a more personal note, I am a graduate of Indiana University, a 2020 graduate of the Purdue University Extension Master Gardener program, and a proud member of the South Central Indiana Master Gardeners Association (www.scimga.com). In my spare time, I enjoy digging in the dirt, experimenting in the kitchen, letting my imagination run wild with a good book, and spending time with my family.

I hope you enjoy my work and love to hear your feedback! Feel free to leave a comment or send me a message on Facebook- www.FB.com/joannatuckerart.
