About Me

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 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, sons, and sweet pup Abbie in beautiful Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. When I’m not traveling the US to help artists awaken their creativity, I spend my time at the ballpark to watch my boys play!

The Turquoise Iris Paint Talks Podcast

It’s been six weeks since I launched the new creative exploration group, Creativity at Your Fingertips.  While I’ve been billing it as a sort of “finger painting for adults group,” these first few weeks have shown me that it’s so much more. Every week we have fun...
