Arlene Pence primarily creates her fine art photography from her travels in California, Oregon, Utah, Nevada, and Washington. Her long journey in photography began over 50 years ago. She focuses particularly on black and white images as she feels they offer the greatest opportunity for creativity. Her work has been displayed at Gallery One since the mid-1990s. She learned her skills in large format photography and darkroom work by attending workshops with many master photographers. Since digital photography emerged, she found those skills easily transferable to that new medium, which she now uses, exclusively. In the gallery, you may see her digital 16 x 20 archival images displayed along with an occasional darkroom print as well as some color work. Her mini-fine art archival prints, mounted on archival gift cards, are very popular to those who might like to acquire a variety of her work. She moved to Grants Pass from Los Gatos, California in 1992 after a long career in software technical writing at IBM.
