Ben Onachila


Ben Onachila grew up in the small town of Albion, Pennsylvania. He eventually left the Great Lakes area for the Mt. Washington Valley of New Hampshire, intent on rock climbing and hiking. After eight years there he followed his vision to Bisbee in Southeast Arizona, arriving sight unseen.  After nine years, he again followed his inner wisdom to Western North Carolina and the town of Brevard, also arriving sight unseen.  He has lived there the past eleven years. Ben calls himself an artist of life, with each place he has lived being a canvas upon which to paint anew. Homecoming, 2018 and Anubis Stands Close By, 2018
