Sookkyung Park established an Arts & Crafts studio in 1982 and maintained the studio for 25 years in South Korea. In 2011, she emigrated to the U.S. in her 50's and received B.A. in Studio Arts from University of Maryland, College Park in 2016. After graduating, she was selected to participate in several regional and international juried exhibitions. Her works have been featured in many publications, including The Washington Post, The Korea Times, East City Art, Bmore Art, MAP, WSG news, and the Maryland State Arts Council. Park continued to ponder how to maximize her potential with familiar material and found out that it was paper. This is because she had been working on paper-related works for 25 years. In 2019, to further develop this concept, she entered to Towson University MFA Program. She was awarded the Best Award twice from the CAGO (Contemporary Art Gallery Online) for the 3-D Category in 2020 and 2021. She was awarded first prize in 2023 from the international Competition "Paper Made" held by Fiber Art Now. In May 2023, she graduated with an MFA from Towson University.
