Since Immersion, I’ve rethought my entire career and what I want to do going forward. I would encourage anyone to join Immersion, no matter their level. It was so helpful to get another creative person’s viewpoint and approach, as well as the creative peers. I’ve been a Textile Designer for 28 years but didn’t realize […]

By following the course, I was able to learn and build patterns with minimal questions or frustration. It has given me a strong desire to put my creativity into the world, […]

As someone who has spent a lot of time in school, and taken a lot of classes, I can say that Immersion not only offered an incredible amount of really good content, but it was also taught so well! I went into Immersion thinking I knew Illustrator pretty well, but once I got going I […]

Surface design is my dream job, and one that I never knew existed until I came across Bonnie Christine. I have always loved creating (I was the kid who spent their allowance on art supplies), but I was taught that art was a hobby, not a practical career. So instead I took the path of […]

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 […]

In addition to my day job as a Radiologic Technologist, I am a self-taught artist and Surface Pattern Designer. I am able to confidently say those words after completing the 2021 Immersion Course offered by Bonnie Christine.  Not only did I learn how to use the Adobe Illustrator program, I learned valuable lessons about myself. […]

What made you decide to enroll in the Immersion Course? I knew I needed to do something artistic, and that I couldn’t sit in my little cubicle desk for one more minute. At first what held me back was the price. I had never purchased anything that expensive for myself before. And for whatever reason, […]

From the moment I started the Immersion course my life started slowly improving everyday. I changed my daily habits and started drawing regularly. I always felt so much support from the Flourish community and started creating in a completely new way with so much confidence.  Since then, I sold my first collection to a small maker […]

I have been a graphic designer for the past 10 years so I was hesitant to join Immersion because I already knew Illustrator really well, but I’m so glad I did. I learned so many new things – especially shortcuts! I was hesitant about the cost of the course, but I made the money back […]

I loved the clear, well organized lessons that really helped me level up my skillset in Illustrator. I also learned so much about launching a creative business doing exactly what I wanted to do, and it is so spot on for what I needed to get things rolling.

What did you love most about Immersion? I love the community. The encouragement and support we all share with one another is wonderful. Before Immersion, I felt like I was on an island floating out there all on my own. After Immersion, I realize I am part of a talented community of supportive and encouraging […]

After I took the Immersion Course, I felt that I had the skills to build a solid design portfolio and begin creating products to sell locally and online. Yes, the Immersion Course is a big investment, but that’s exactly what it is, an INVESTMENT IN YOU that will pay off in a number of ways […]

"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.
