Hello! My name is René Comer. I am a photographer, artist, wife, mom, and owner of Sensing Majesty, here on Oahu, Hawaii. During the summer of 2013, my husband and I relocated from Texas to Hawaii!
I opened Sensing Majesty because I really want to share my admiration of God’s handiwork. The best way I can do this is by making fine art nature photography and digital paintings.
We did not have a television for many of my younger years, so we did a lot of gallivanting around our home town and took road trips to see family. My parents loved taking photos recording those trips. My siblings and I would all sit on the living room floor and watch their slide shows on Friday nights. I guess having an affinity for road trips and taking photos is inevitable!
My husband and our adult children back in Texas as well as my very supportive siblings and their spouses constantly keep me inspired with the photos that they show me. I also draw creativity from my happy place – that is my tiny studio. Quirky-looking seed pods and unusual beach finds are scattered on my shelves. Amidst my Georgia O’ Keefe and Ansel Adam prints are pieces of art made by my friends and family and, of course photos of my children.
For photos, I usually use a Nikon DSLR. For editing and painting, I use Corel Painter and Photoshop. Although I miss getting messy with paints, there are two big reasons that I chose to create digitally:
1) It does not take up very much space.
2) I’m saving my funds for printing rather than buying paint supplies.
Hope to see you soon at my gallery on Etsy. Leave me a comment—I would love to know that any of my work brings you joy!
I hope you have a blessed day!
