After graduating and completing a residency at the Port Moody Arts Centre (PMAC), Tucker made the Tri-Cities his home: He joined the Tri-City Potters, set up Straight Up Studios, taught at PMAC and Place des Arts and exhibited regularly.

His sculptures can often be seen in the Christmas Boutique at the Coquitlam facility, which is now calling for handmade art for its annual artisan sale that runs Nov. 12 to Dec. 21.
