Before I started my Surface Pattern Design journey, I was a stay-at-home mom and a graphic designer with 15 years of corporate design experience under my belt. I needed to go back into the workforce after a 5-year hiatus and really didn’t want to do the same thing I had been doing before. I needed […]
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 […]
The course helped me, master Illustrator, going from limited knowledge (of basic functionality before Immersion) to very in-depth Illustrator knowledge. Even more importantly, I now am able to get my designs and patterns onto my own products at a larger scale. About half a year before I stumbled upon Immersion (I was a last-minute joiner), […]
Before I joined Immersion, I had been working for myself for 4 years as a multidisciplinary designer and illustrator. I realized that I had been working in a Shadow Career (so aptly put in The Artists Way) and what I really wanted to do was become a full-time artist and share my art with the […]
I’m a watercolor artist who was a self-taught pattern designer selling my designs on Spoonflower before I found Bonnie and her programs. I created all my designs in Photoshop and didn’t know a lick about Illustrator or the design business. I wanted to learn more about surface pattern design as I started to get asked […]
Before I took Immersion I already had a design business and had licensed a range of designs with companies around the world, but since I’m a self-taught designer I have had to piecemeal my education on my own, which always made me feel a bit insecure about not having a formal education to lean on […]
This past year has been my first to break through the six figure mark. Thanks to Bonnie, it feels like it’s just the beginning! Working as a graphic designer, I’ve learned early on that the way to keep an edge and stay valuable and relevant to your clients and industry was to continue to learn, […]
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 […]
Prior to creating and registering her business, Isa lacked direction. She knew that drawing made her happy, and she had big dreams of being able to turn something that made her happy into a business. As time went on her biggest challenge was believing that she was capable, believing that there was room for her […]

After a very winding creative path that included degrees in fine art and graphic design, random jobs across many fields from museums to games to boats to apparel, a lot of crafting and way too much self doubt, I finally took the leap into starting a studio business. Having always loved fabric and repeatedly returning […]
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 […]
What did you love most about Immersion? So many best parts! Learning, amazing community, ability to share and get feedback, and get better at the craft. I also started to really lean into my personal look and feel. I’ve learned my way around illustrator, feel confident in my ability to take a creative idea from […]
"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."
