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 left Immersion with the confidence, knowledge, and portfolio to pitch to art directors within 3 months! Up until the pandemic I was working in various creative fields, including events styling, millinery, and floristry. When Covid hit, all my work dried up overnight. I needed to find a new creative outlet that was more flexible […]

Now I am proficient in IIllustrator: I create patterns, but I also created cards, illustrations, and prints from my painting and watercolours, with Illustrator. I am happy I discovered another way to create. I had never done anything digital before. Before I started my journey with Surface Pattern Design, I was a full-time technical sales […]

My favorite part of Immersion: the skills learning programme, the motivation, inspiration, mentorship, community, passion, and love. Immersion is the best course to go from A-Z in surface pattern design using Illustrator and learning about the business of surface pattern design. Immersion taught me the skills for Surface Pattern Design (SPD) and nothing held me […]

I loved how Immersion opened my eyes to a reality I’d not fully considered before! Plus the absolutely fantastic and supportive community that exists around it.  I felt incredibly nervous and unsure about purchasing the Immersion course in 2021… I reached out to alumni that I found on Instagram to try and allay my fears […]

I was bullet journaling, doing adult coloring in books, and trying to re-connect to my creative self. I joined Flourish in October. Being in peer groups really changed things for me. Then I applied for the scholarship and I won! I was SO OVER THE MOON that someone, one person out there believed in me! […]

I was a stay-at-home mum living in Asia following my husband’s ex-pat career. A background in Fashion design, worked in the Fashion industry in Europe before we moved but was not allowed to work on several of our postings. I taught on and off but my heart was not in it. During my work as […]

The best skill I learned was Adobe Illustrator and making patterns with it. I am so proud of myself because of it. The very best thing for sure is being back in the world of art, it is now a big part of my life and I am not quitting ever! I had many personal […]

Before Immersion, I was a full-time mum taking a break from my career in publishing. My fear was that I was too old and wouldn’t be able to pick up the technical aspects of the course Immersion is an in-depth training on illustrator made easy. The community aspect was lovely and Bonnie’s live Q & […]

"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."

I feel encouraged to set bigger goals for myself, dream bigger, and truly believe that I can achieve them.”

Elizabeth Chappell

"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."

I learned more skills, techniques and workflows. I also learned that there was a community of folks out there that we could all learn from, support and encourage each other."

Heather Schwarm

...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."

In two years since taking immersion, I've been able to turn this passion of mine into a full time career.
