Inside the Immersion course, you’re learning so much more than a program or even how to make a print. You’re learning how to begin building or expanding your creative business and this is just the tip of the iceberg. One of the best parts of Immersion is the community, there are kind people from all […]
After graduating with a Fine Art degree, I was looking for a creative career that would support me financially and also fulfill me. I realized that I absolutely love patterns and that I could design them, but I was overwhelmed with the idea of learning new software that I wasn’t very familiar with. I stumbled […]
It’s never too late! Don’t give up. It does not matter about your age or whether you do not have a specific goal in mind, because this opens up so many avenues… so much potential. I was stuck in a corporate role that I didn’t enjoy. I was looking for something I enjoyed. I am […]
Before I began learning the world of surface pattern design through Immersion, I had just earned my MFA from Hollins University (as a single mom) and was working on my career in children’s literature—writing and illustrating middle-grade novels and picture books. In 2013, I left a decade of domestic abuse, with my two young daughters, […]
The beauty of learning surface pattern design is that you can apply these skills to so many other routes! This course was so well structured that even though I didn’t know Illustrator, I had no problem at all learning it. Before Immersion, I studied microbiology at university and was working as a scientist for a […]
Bonnie teaches like no other: it’s a delight to learn from her and the community. I love the fact that there are people from every background, skill level and from all over the world. I was always artistic and even went to art school, but since I got married art was left aside. I had […]
I began Bonnie’s Immersion course and absolutely loved it. I loved being able to illustrate and the magic of turning artwork into repeating patterns. Bonnie’s course is so well organized and she is a delight to listen to and learn from. I was truly inspired! Erin’s Story: Artistic creation has always been a part of […]
I studied surface pattern design in art school before computers. At the time, the industry was centered on New York and San Francisco and I didn’t want to live in a big city so I never pursued it as a career. I still had a dream of designing but never learned Adobe Illustrator. When I […]
I finally decided I couldn’t do it all. I didn’t want to teach myself Illustrator and spend hours upon hours figuring out the world of licensing, I wanted to learn from someone and Bonnie’s teaching style and her dedication to educating others in the world of surface design and being their biggest cheerleader made it […]
I’ve been an abstract painter for the past 6 years and after listening to Bonnie on a podcast really wanted to try her Immersion Course. I loved the idea of merging my paintings with the digital world. Having zero experience in Illustrator, I decided to jump right in, but Bonnie made it easy. What I […]
I appreciated learning all the little tech shortcuts in Illustrator. As an artist and designer, I was outside the realm of surface pattern design but wanted to know more. Now I feel I can accomplish almost anything in the field.
The thing I love most about Immersion is the quality of the content and the thoughtfulness and value of the resource were above my expectations! I have learned so much and love growing with the community. Five years ago, I was on maternity leave from a career I worked hard to achieve with a beautiful […]
Immersion changed my life and gave me the resources I needed to fulfill my dream of working as an artist. Before beginning my journey with Surface Pattern Design I was a stay-at-home mom who created art during nap time. For years, more than a decade, I had a dream of designing surface patterns but I […]
I have such a story to tell, and I don’t know how better to sum it all up except to say that two years ago, I was navigating my way being a single mom of three, determined to find a way to support my family—and now, I can say with confidence that my artwork supports […]
"It is refreshing to find Bonnie who is genuinely excited to share her knowledge with others. She feels that our success is a wonderful thing and it doesn't threaten her. I want to be a Bonnie in this world. I want to feel abundance, not scarcity. There is enough for everyone to succeed, and I want to help others find success. Being in a community with that kind of thinking is priceless."
"The Immersion Course is incredibly comprehensive, providing you with all of the tools necessary to have a successful career in Surface Pattern Design. I had already taken all of Bonnie’s other classes when I signed up for her Immersion Course and wasn’t sure if there was that much more she could teach me. Boy, was I wrong."
...and I'm still coming back for more of Bonnie's content because it is so life giving and encouraging. I've been licensed in many industries including fabric, children's clothing, home decor and the outdoor industry."
