Kollet Probst Interview ~ Brian Pauley

The billiard world has some of the most dedicated fans of any sport in the world.  Fans routinely travel to events hours and states away to see their favorite players up close and personal and to hopefully interact with their favorite player.  Fans show their appreciate in many ways.  Some wear billiard related clothing, some subscribe to monthly streaming services, and some engage in online forums and social media discussions about their favorite players and topics.  But one lady combines two of her passions to create true works or art.

Meet Kollet Nichole Probst.  Kollet is a passionate pool fan who has created some stunning  art pieces of some of the legends of the game such as “The Black Widow” Jeanette Lee and “Dr Cue” Tom Rossman.  The detail in her drawings is as impressive as a Shane Van Boening 10 ball break.  Kollet even records videos of herself drawing these amazing art pieces.  Check them out on her YouTube channel at Kollet Originals.  Here is a little bit about the woman behind the canvas.
