7 News Arts All-Star: Tesa Holman

TURIN, N.Y. (WWNY) -

Tesa Holman's family, especially her mother, is into art, so "I just kind of picked it up in time."

The South Lewis visual artist is the 7 News Arts All-Star for January 3, 2019.

For her, she says, art can be an escape from reality. "It's like your own little world -- it's like you have a place to go, a comfort zone and a way to just pretty much get away from your normal life."

Tesa hopes to go to college and become a pastry chef, which she says "is still a form of art."
