Tae Park paints a wide selection of subject matter from the classical figure to mythological nymphs, antiquated bicycles tying the viewer to childhood memories, cityscapes of metropolitan areas worldwide, European street scenes from her many painting trips to historical areas and the simple but elegant still life. Her technique of alternating from saturated pigment to diffused paint application gives each piece a soft focus feel. Now, as a painting instructor at her alma mater, she shares her passion for the figure and the portrait with gifted students under her tutelage".
