When I first signed up for Immersion I could never have predicted how my path would unfold, but it was the catalyst I needed to change my life.
Before I discovered Surface Pattern Design I was (unhappily) working in academia, yearning for a more creative life. After dabbling in some short online courses in my spare time, I heard about the Immersion course and signed up as fast as I could, without any hesitation!
I was excited about mastering Adobe Illustrator and learning everything I could about starting a creative business and art licensing. What I didn't expect was the warm and encouraging community I would find there - friendships with like-minded souls that will last a lifetime.
Since completing the Immersion course in 2018 I have set up my own website, started selling products on print-on-demand sites (most recently a tarot deck with 78 illustrations!), written a monthly blog and newsletter about living an unconventional creative life, and just completed a 6-month artist in residence position with a local business.
I learned how to nurture an abundance mindset and now see opportunities everywhere. I'm not sure exactly what the future holds but I'm excited to keep building the creative life of my dreams.
