Before I started my journey with Surface Pattern Design, I was working as a teacher and creating products to sell at art shows, on the side. I love to sew and have always wished to see my designs on fabric, but it seemed so far out of reach & I never thought it would be possible for me. I went to school to become a psychologist and a teacher – I did not study graphic design or art, however, I have always considered myself to be an artist, and I am very much self-taught.
When I stumbled upon an advertisement for Bonnie Christine’s Immersion 2021 course, I was in shock: the course description was exactly what I had been looking for, but never knew it existed.
I hesitated to sign up because I had never opened Adobe Illustrator and I really didn’t know if I would belong. Despite not knowing Illustrator, I trusted Bonnie’s videos & emails suggesting that her classes are appropriate for all levels & I decided to sign up.
Bonnie’s teaching style is designed to be supportive and understandable. Her energy is positive, uplifting, inspiring, and calming. The “bite-sized” chunks were exactly what I needed in order to learn Illustrator and feel confident in my new skills.
I have also found the nicest, most supportive community within Immersion. My peer group was thoughtfully constructed by Bonnie’s team. Since completing Immersion 2021, my business has made significant growth. I have quit my day job and I now have over 10 wholesale accounts! I’m using fabrics and other products featuring my surface patterns, and I’ve even been accepted into the Creative Hive Mastermind with Stacie Bloomfield where I am continuing to grow my business!
If you are on the fence about signing up, I encourage you to dream big and believe in yourself, too. This course has changed my life in so many ways for the better and I will forever be grateful to Bonnie and her team for making that possible!
I am now a part of a larger, positive, supportive community of the absolute nicest creative people who are always so willing to share and provide encouragement & support.
There really is room for you!
