"For Kijsa Housman, creativity is a way of life. She has worked for 25 years as a professional artist recently taking part in an art residency in Can Seurat near Barcelona. Housman is also the owner of MAKE, a boutique art studio in Paducah, Kentucky, a city that is designated as the “world’s seventh Creative City of Crafts & Folk Art” by UNESCO. Just about everything artistic is offered at MAKE from private classes for adults and kids to workshops that teach painting or printing. We caught up with the busy artist to learn more about her career, see how she got started in the field and, of course, find out how she would spend the perfect day in her city. "
