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

Paint Talks is an interactive podcast for creatives of all walks of life! Our mission is to amplify creative voices and empower all artists to recognize the value they bring to the world through insightful conversation. Listen here or wherever you download podcasts!
