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!

I painted my old grey suede boots teal! Yes I was nervous I might ruin them but I also hadn’t worn these for over three years, so why not try?? This was a super easy DIY shoe hack! Products are DIY Paint and available on my site. #PaintedShoes #ShoeHack #BlueBoots #ShoeMakeover

The trick is to water down the paint and let it saturate or dye the fabric. This is No. 1 of 5 in my newest collection, inspired by the warm summer evenings with a bit of a twinkle. ✨
