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 I have been fortunate enough to receive and features and public displays I have participated 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 continue to grow my knowledge of photography, plants, and nature. In my spare time, I enjoy digging in the dirt, dabbling with chalk and paint, letting my imagination run wild with a good book, and spending time with my family.
