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 fail every time at this challenge! I want to get this so badly, but maybe the challenge itself needs more flexibility?? I can’t seem to find 15 minutes every single day to practice my watercolor. I am painting… I’m painting many things… But I wanna learn more about watercolor! 

So, maybe instead of continuing with the same challenge and getting the same results, I need to actually have more compassion for myself and change my process. #WIP #WatercolorChallenge #Mindset
