The most important thing I’ve learned from Immersion is that we can Dream and those Dreams come true. Dreams are real and possible, not only in our head, we can put them on paper and read them out loud. Taking the Immersion Course made me realize how important the community is, I’ve made friends and I know that whenever I find myself in difficulty regarding any aspects of surface pattern design I can count on this community.
I discovered Bonnie through a friend who recommended her Skillshare classes while I was studying interior design. I used Bonnie’s class to learn new skills for Uni projects, and it was a success. Since then I studied and researched anything about surface pattern design and in 2020 while working in a warehouse I decided to join the Immersion Course. My only worry was the financial situation but I couldn’t keep delaying it.
I’ve learned the importance of showing my work and also how to receive feedback and use it to improve my work. I’ve learned how to organize my work, how to find inspiration around me, and how to use it in my work. I love creating a color pallet from my own photos. I’ve also learned that any mark, any texture, and any drawing or painting can become a beautiful pattern.
Since completing the Immersion I sold over 40 patterns for a wallpaper company. It may sound small for some but for me is reassuring that I’m on the right path. And even if I’m not able to quit my 9-6 job yet I’m not giving up. I’m still working every day to accomplish my dream.
This course is perfect for anyone who likes drawing, painting, doodling, or making marks out of anything.
