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’m finally tackling this vanity makeover and filming for @madetv.network. I decided to use my own velvet fabric for color inspiration. ( You can see it there draped on the mannequin)

I painted this 1 1/2 ago in cool tones and no one has purchased her, so I’m going warm and wildflower style this time! Wish me luck! ☀️🌾🌸

Today, during my weekly book club, I read the words from @jamiekernlima “Your set backs are actually your setups for what’s coming” Now, those of you that spend time around here or in one of my creative circles are gonna get so tired of hearing me repeat these words. 

BUT, this perspective is just soooo good! It has to be shared over and over again!
