Guide to Surface Design


Let's do this!

As a completely self-taught designer, I know the value of shared information. After learning on my own, teaching tens of thousands of students and working as a professional designer for the past decade, I want to guide you in building your own career. Let me save you years of learning on your own. YES, years!

I learned so much from Bonnie, not just the technical aspect, but the mental aspect as well. I became more resilient, disciplined and focused.  There are two types of people in the world; those who simply talk and dream of success and the ones who go out there, chase their dreams and get things done. You’ve got to do the hard work; then you’ll thank yourself a year from now. I know I am.

"Bonnie opened doors for me that I never knew were possible. She opened my mind to what I can achieve with my life."

One accomplishment has been that I can use Illustrator now with EASE and let me tell you...if I can start at 54 years old going from "I don't know what I'm doing with Illustrator" then ANYONE can do this.

Seriously...SO MUCH CHANGED after this course.

One of those experiences is coming across Bonnie Christine. As an artist I have come across many workshops and courses but not all have been as valuable as Bonnie's. The knowledge and skills that she shares is far from being generic. Not only does she share her experiences, she teaches the necessary tools you need to grow and blossom in your career. She has been an important mentor in my career, and a beautiful kindred spirit!

There are a few experiences in my career as an illustrator and surface pattern designer that I can consider life changing.

I was curious about taking the Immersion Course for a while, but kept telling myself I probably didn't need it, since I have a degree in Graphic Design. However I was feeling stuck and I had so many questions about the industry. I am a stay at home mom of 3 little ones, so Time is GOLD! Trying to teach myself all these things was taking forever and was also lonely. I took the plunge and signed up for Immersion 2019.  It was one of the best decisions I made for my business.
