Meghann Rader

After earning her BFA of Art and Design in Vancouver, Meghann’s interest in illustration was discouraged. Because the school was very conceptual, she left feeling confused as to how she could earn a living as an artist. For several years she worked at a local art supply store, and even tried woodworking, but nothing felt […]

Anne LaFollette

When I discovered surface design, I was recovering from a deep depression because I was let go from my corporate job in my late 50s. My entire identity was my fancy corporate job where I made 6-figures and had a ton of extra benefits. I needed to reinvent myself and fell in love with surface […]

"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."

...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.
