Enos was born in 1920. He attended mission school before finding work as a camel boy. One of his jobs as a cameleer was in 1938 when he was asked by Albert and Battarbee to accompany them on a painting trip into the MacDonnell Ranges.
Enos took up watercolour painting in 1945. His early enthusiasm to paint in watercolour had been subdued because of his father having a tribal obligation to give more assistance to another aspiring artist Walter Ebatariinja. Before this he had contributed to the Hermannsburg handicraft initiative by carving and decorating souvenir boomerangs. A feature of his work was his ability to portray lively hunting scenes which captured all of the drama of the event.
Enos progressed with his art in the late 1940s and developed his own distinct style. Battarbee cited the reason for his unique development in style was because Enos was living on a reserve west of Herrmannsburg, away from his fathers artistic influence. His landscapes are deftly painted with stylised brushwork and feature expressive colours. He is know to have produced a few figurative works which depicted hunting scenes with tribesman, emus, wild dogs.
