Clinton was born in McAllen, Texas on February 21, 1985. He grew up in the Dallas area and began drawing at an early age. After discovering his appreciation for art, he was introduced to the work of master painter Dalhart Windberg, who would become his teacher and mentor when Broyles was 15.

Working with Mr. Windberg over the years has motivated him to pursue a career in art. He has also obtained training in drawing and painting from Texas AM University, where he received a Bachelor's degree in Architecture in 2007. His studies there inspired him to incorporate an architectural theme in many of his paintings. Also, time spent studying in Italy has significantly influenced his work.

He is currently represented by the Southwest Gallery in Dallas and NanEtte Richardson Fine Art in San Antonio.
