Chroma Coma is a self-taught oil pastel artist from Columbia, SC.He has always loved art and has been drawing since he was 3 years old. He discovered oil pastels in high school and fell in love. While he did not go to college for art, he found himself drawing as a cathartic release after long days of work at a restaurant. After meeting another artist that sells his work at conventions, craft fairs, and art festivals, he was inspired to pursue art as a career. Since he started he has yet to meet another professional oil pastel artist and so he feels this is an open niche in the art world. He also want’s to show people what can be done with this medium so maybe more people feel motivated to give them a shot.
