James McClure I was born and raised in the beautiful Foothills of Santa Barbara. While growing up I often spent my time building forts and hiking on trails around my house where I spent the majority of my spare time. I also developed a love for the outdoors and an appreciation for nature.

At the age of nine I began my love for music getting my first instrument, a clarinet. Quickly becoming obsessed with music I began to play other instruments and was very involved with my schools band organizations. All the while a small interest in doodling began when I couldn't play music. Over time the doodles became more serious and I developed an intense attraction to surreal art, in particular Salvador Dali. The more I studied Dali's work the more fascinated I became with the world of painting and art in general.
