Immersion helped me do my ‘one thing a day’ related to what I’d like to be doing in the future instead of what I’m actually doing now. I’ve been working as a creative in the quilt and textiles industry for over 20 years now. I began as a lover of all things with a thread […]
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 […]
Bonnie and the team are so encouraging, supportive, gentle, and kind; Bonnie breaks everything down into small digestible bites which makes it so much easier to learn and absorb. There’s also something special about the amazing community of creatives also on this journey, helping and cheering each other on – some of which I have […]
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 […]
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 […]
When I started Immersion in 2020 I was already a top-seller on the Spoonflower marketplace, and I’d been using Adobe Illustrator for 20 years. However, I was mostly self-taught so I really lacked confidence as a designer and I definitely suffered from imposter syndrome! Let me say… I got SO MUCH out of Immersion! The […]
Before I started my journey with Surface Pattern Design, I was working as a teacher and creating products to sell at art shows, on the side. I love to sew and have always wished to see my designs on fabric, but it seemed so far out of reach & I never thought it would be […]
Bonnie really takes your hand and guides you through the process. She is there at your side. I discovered Bonnie on Skillshare three years ago. I found out about the Immersion Course and decided very quickly that I wanted to dive deeply into surface pattern design! I learned so many new things. Things I thought […]
Before I jumped into the Surface design world, I had been designing, sewing, and selling baby clothing on my Etsy store. I was always swamped with orders! The money was great but I had 3 children (with another on the way) and a husband who I was losing out on time spent with them. When […]
Realizing that I can actually make money from my art feels amazing. My passion for Surface Pattern Design has grown ever since I took the Immersion Course and I am excited about everything that’s ahead of me. Taking the Immersion Course was one of the most transformational and best decisions of my whole life! Before […]
Before I started Immersion, I had never opened Adobe Illustrator and never heard of surface pattern design. I imagined that it would be too difficult to learn and I relied on drawing on paper instead. I came across Bonnie’s course and it seemed like the exact thing I’d been wanting to learn and do! I […]
For someone that has never opened up the Illustrator program before, Bonnie was so clear on her teaching and encouraging every step of the way. Before I began my journey with Surface Pattern Design I created my own business called Sweet Melody Designs. The problem was, I wasn’t enjoying the work I was creating and […]
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, […]
Investing in this course has opened a lot of beautiful things in my Surface Pattern Design career. After taking the course I felt confident and secure to start pitching brands to send my designs for consideration. In the course, I learned how to develop my collections and start building my portfolio. The best part of […]
"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."
