Happy Birthday, Kate!

Maya M. Tola 3 June 2020 min Read

This is an unusual feature and probably the only one in DailyArt Magazine history that will also come as a surprise to our beloved Editor-in-chief, Dr. Kate Wojtczak.

For our readers who may have wondered who keeps the wheels of our magazine turning, meet Kate!  She is a passionate art historian with a Ph.D. on the 19th-century civil engineer and architect of the city of Gdansk, Julius Albert Licht.  Apart from being an attentive and meticulous editor, she is a wonderful person with a great sense of humor, a passion for travel, a great appreciation for nature, of course, she also loves animals!
