Despite winning an art contest in fifth grade, Taylor Stewart didn't realize she was good at it until she started taking a studio art class in her junior year.
The Indian River artist is the 7 News Arts All-Star for March 29, 2018.

"It's just an easy way to express myself," she said.
She plans to attend Jefferson Community College for her first two years and hopefully transfer to SUNY Potsdam. Her goal is to teach art in high school.
