Mark Kromer came from a creative household, the son of woodcarver Elmer Kromer and the younger brother of painter Jeff Kromer. At a young age, he was fascinated by the fantasy and sci-fi art of the '70s and '80s, but was increasingly influenced by his brother's work and later by the art of his art teacher, Richard Huck. During his early years, he had created illustrations for various venues including album covers for several bands. Currently, he focuses his efforts on portraiture.
