Joanna Francis was born in Kingston, Jamaica in 1985.
She is a graduate of the Edna Manley College of the Visual
and Performing Arts where she majored in Painting, and
also developed her passion for Photography. She learned
the process of developing Black & White film, which she
tremendously enjoyed. However, she has transitioned now
from film to digital where she still enjoys the process of
"developing" a photograph from its first stage of point and
shoot, through editing, to the final stage of presentation.
Joanna started by taking portraiture photographs and
photos of Jamaican scenery. Her present work is focused
on beach scenes, natural life in Jamaica, and the people
that make up the diversity of Jamaica's culture.
Joanna has taken part in a couple of group exhibitions, as
well as the Annual National Visual Arts Competition &
Exhibition, in 2007, where her work received merit, and
graced the walls of the National Gallery of Jamaica.
Joanna currently has photographs in the 128 Gallery,
located in Kingston, as well as Island Art & Framing, also
located in Kingston.
