Meet Dionne Woods

Hi, I’m Dionne Woods! I’m an artist, business owner, and creative business coach. In my work, I use signature layering and blending techniques to create one-of-a-kind statement pieces. I also offer professional tools, paint workshops, and online communities designed to elevate and amplify artists from all backgrounds. I especially love my work as a creative coach who encourages artists to embrace the things that make them unique and translate that into art.

As part of my mission to empower creatives, I have launched Paint Talks, a podcast designed to share the true, inspiring stories of creatives from all walks of life. I also founded The Turquoise Iris Journal, a digital magazine by and for creatives, filled with tutorials, step-by-step projects, and powerful messages of community and hope.

I live with my husband, and sons in beautiful Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. When I’m not traveling the US to help artists awaken their creativity, I spend my time with my family!

We all get stuck sometimes! If you’ve been feeling a little creatively blocked, try turning your art into play. This takes the pressure off of you to make something “beautiful” and allows you to have some fun and be more playful. 
Finger-painting is still my favorite choice for creative play! Our group meets online very week and I rely on this time to lose myself on the canvas.🩵 One of my all time favorite floral landscapes is available to watch, exclusively on @bloomtv.network
