About the Artist
When I look at the oil paintings of Youngsook Park, I can't help but want to be in the environment she has created. Whether it is an adobe block bonded together with the age of history or the pounding streets of an urban city, Park captures a mood of romance with the stroke of her brush. The calmness of color soothes and captures me, places me into the paintings, and allows me to be a world traveler. By sharing the richness of culture through her skill and craftsmanship, one gets a true feeling of emotion from the artist. She is truly a master of her technique.
