James Heroux was born in April of 1980 and was raised in Framingham, Massachusetts. At the age of 24, moved to sunny Arizona to be near his South-Western family. There, he began to find himself and where his love of art could take him. He attended school in Phoenix where his career as an artist took off. He graduated in 2008 with a degree in Fine Arts.

After reuniting with his childhood friend and crush in 2009, James made the 3,000 mile trek back home to Massachusetts to be with his love and soulmate Deven. They married in December 2011. 

Deven and James have two beautiful Australian Labradoodles Levi and Hadley. They have an exciting announcement that they also recently welcomed the beautiful little Seth Henry into the family, who was born on May 2013.  Another perfect addition to a wonder family!

James' studio space is in Framingham, Massachusetts.
