Enid Probst art reflects her interest in merging classical and contemporary themes as well as contrasting textures and luminosity. The beauty of nature, scenes of everyday life and spiritual expression are her inspiration. While enjoying the close work of individual pieces, she is drawn to the challenges of large installations such as floor and wall mosaics as well as sculpture.
Originally self-taught, Enid has refined her understanding of mosaic art by training with master mosaic artists in the United States, Italy and Mexico. Currently, she is completing a Certificate of Mosaic Arts from the Chicago Mosaic School. Her work can be seen at several public installations in the River Region, including two community mosaic projects, as well as a wall mosaic completed in 2015 for Jackson Hospital. In addition, she has numerous private installations and fine art pieces in residences in Alabama, Florida and Colorado.
Enid enjoys teaching mosaic art. She holds classes in Montgomery, was invited to teach at the Alabama Folk School and has received artist -in -residencies from both the Montgomery Museum of Fine Art and the Jule Collins Smith Museum of Art, Auburn, Alabama.
She is a member of the Society of American Mosaic Artists, the British Association for Modern Mosaic, the Contemporary Mosaic Association, the Montgomery Art Guild and the Society of Arts and Crafts. She regularly shows work at juried shows.
