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 […]

The inspiration and motivation I experienced during the course propelled me forward and set the tone for my most productive and successful year up until that point. After Immersion 2020, I put a website and portfolio together, started pitching to clients, and signed three licensing contracts within the year! In 2021, I landed my first fabric collection […]

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 […]

Goodness, I can’t thank Bonnie enough! Enrolling in Immersion has been one of the best decisions I’ve made! Bonnie’s teaching is superb, the support and encouragement from the team is incredible, and the community is so amazing! I remember thinking to myself at the beginning of the course, “there’s no way I can learn so […]

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, […]

Before I learned what surface pattern design was, I owned a beach rental business in Maui. I found Bonnie and thought I would learn Illustrator to design flyers for our shop. I quickly became addicted to making patterns and wanted to put them on everything! After taking Immersion the entire world opened up. I had […]

I was initially attracted to Bonnie’s vibrant personality on social media and signed up for Immersion to learn Illustrator after several failed attempts. I use illustrator with my clients in my role as an Interior Designer. I love the format of the modules and the specific, actionable steps. While I learned Illustrator, I was blown away […]

Bonnie shares exclusive information from the industry and a much more thorough walk through illustrator. It’s equivalent to a college course without the competitive, high pressure environment that universities can create. You will be surrounded by highly encouraging, creative, and caring people that will help if you get stuck, celebrate your successes, and give constructive […]

The Immersion Course and Flourish have given me the confidence and a roadmap for how I move forward. I have built three collections, have my own website and have started pitching to companies. I have now been approached by a UK fabric company about working with them and feel like my dreams are becoming a […]

Larimie “Xhico” Garcia

Before the Immersion Course, I was self-employed as a Creative Director and Designer. I wanted to take the Immersion Course because I love doing deep dives into learning new skills to expand my creative practice. I had created patterns before but wanted to make sure to learn as much as I could from Bonnie. When […]

"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.
