Surface design is my dream job, and one that I never knew existed until I came across Bonnie Christine. I have always loved creating (I was the kid who spent their allowance on art supplies), but I was taught that art was a hobby, not a practical career.
So instead I took the path of Psychology at University and worked with kids with Autism until I had my own children. I had been fortunate enough to be a stay-at-home mom for a number of years, and just when I thought that it was time to get back into the workforce, the pandemic hit. I had always dreamt of working from home and on my own schedule, but suddenly having my kids home all the time reinforced how important it was to me to have flexibility.
I came across Bonnie’s website and was intrigued, but honestly, I was also scared. It has been so many years since I truly did something just for myself. I worried that it was selfish to spend money on a course that I didn’t know that much about. I had never opened Illustrator before and was worried that I wouldn’t know enough to even begin.
Watching Bonnie talk about surface design and the Immersion course just gave me a gut feeling that it was the right choice, that it was worth the leap of faith … and it was.
Immersion taught me so much about AI and the huge world of surface design. It introduced me to a community of people who loved and wanted the same thing but managed to do so in a way that created no competition, only support.
I intend to keep growing, and learning, and doing “one thing a day”, and I am excited to see where it will take me.
