AMWA Artist-in-Residence 2015-2016 – Kathryn Ko, MD, MFA
Dr. Ko, a self taught Ambidexter, completed Neurosurgery training at Mt. Sinai Medical Center in New York City and earned a MFA from the Academy of Art University. During residency she also launched her complementary career in art by using the pulsed ruby laser to create medical holograms of the human brain in collaboration with Holographics, Inc. Ko regards art as a necessary continuation of her surgical practice. The operating theater is her studio; the treatment of the subject begins with the scalpel and ends with the brush.
