American ceramic artist and painter Toshiko Takaezu: "You are not an artist simply because you paint or sculpt or make pots that cannot be used. An artist is a poet in his or her own medium. And when an artist produces a good piece, that work has mystery, an unsaid quality; it is alive."
In Jamie confiding, "I think I have finally found what I hope beauty is, or at least, beauty as it applies to me." That beauty: comfortable self-acceptance. She told CBSNews in "To me, perfection is being happy with who you are. Look at me, I’m happy.”
