Kyah Probst, 21, is a multi-disciplinary artist based in Milwaukee. Her art is focused on processes of art-making, self-reflection, and often time marvels at the idea of transformation. Around the age of 15, Kyah began developing a highly unique way of processing art. First, Kyah uses a medley of traditional mediums (usually watercolor, acrylic, ink), layers several paintings on top of each other in Adobe Photoshop, and surgically adds features from a variety of work. Eventually, these designs become meld into intricate, digitally altered works of art to be printed on a variety of media. In 2018, she was named one of 15 Emerging Young Artists through VSA and The Kennedy Center in Washington D.C. Additionally, Kyah’s artwork has been featured in the Department of Education (2016), the 2020 Synergy exhibit in Milwaukee, and has previously been on a year-long, nationally touring exhibit. Pieces from Kyah’s most successful collection of artwork—the “Pareidolia Collection”—can be found HERE.
Outside of her artwork, Kyah has been shooting dSLR photography since age ten. Kyah has photographed catalogues for Kokoro—a Roman boutique in Trastevere, Italy—events such as UW-Milkwaukee’s 2019 TEDx conference, the menu for Sweetie Cup Thai Cafe in St. Louis, and countless seniors and families. Examples of her hobbyist work can be found under the “photography” tab at kyahprobst.com
Kyah’s other bodies of work encompass an eclectic body of writing, traveling, and education. Her most recent writings include a project known as “A Homeschool Exploration“—where she has taken half a dozen interviews from homeschoolers across St. Louis and turned them into a series of descriptive essays—in order to help readers understand the true eclectic nature and practices of homeschooling in Missouri. In “The Travel Masterpost,” you can find all of Kyah’s traveling experiences consolidated into one masterpost.
