The Comeback Queen


Jamieson Thomson Thomas is in the midst of two major comebacks in her late 50s. After a devastating car accident, she’s working to regain the rowing skills that helped her win a national championship. At the same time, she finally feels bold enough to pursue the passion of her youth and launch a new career as a full-time fine artist.

Jamieson explains how giving advice to other artists as part of her job at a museum inspired her to heed her own words and how her hard-earned success in rowing gave her the confidence to chase a dream deferred for decades.

Editor’s Note: Growing Bolder’s Marc Middleton and Jason Morrow were nominated for an Emmy® Award for this story.
