She also studied Western art in Germany, the United Kingdom and United States where she obtained a BFA at Stony Brook University. Her works of art harmonizes cultural influences by drawing upon the wisdom of East Asian Masters while exploring new ways of expressing her surroundings.

Sung-sook has exhibited in many solo and group shows in New York, Washington DC, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, Alabama, Minnesota, Maryland and Oxford, England. She has received numerous awards including A Best of Show as well as Second Prize at the National Exhibition of the Sumi-e Society of America, Inc. Presently, her work is being represented at B.J. Spoke Gallery in Huntington, New York. Her work has been collected by public institutions such as Stony Brook University, Natural History Museum in Oxford, as well as many private collectors. She is currently teaching at the Long Island Art League, the Wang Center of Stony Brook University, the China Institute in Manhattan, and her studio in Setauket.
