From Dionne Woods:

I am a mom, wife and online creative business owner living in Oklahoma City, OK.  Eight years ago, I decided to open my Etsy store selling vintage home accessories, hand painted furniture and other handmade items. Since then, I’ve shipped several hundred pieces of furniture all over the country.

My original artwork consists of a full color palette. I am a lover of all things colorful and find my inspiration in nature. I love to help you find the perfect art or furniture piece for your home. My style can be described as rustic boho with a side of turquoise. My work can be identified by many layers of color and textures. I believe we should decorate our homes with what makes us happy, ignoring trends, and creating a style that belongs to us and us alone.

In 2017, I became are DIY Paint retailer selling my DIY tutorials online, started a membership group for furniture artists and developed a love for teaching. Since then, I host online paint classes/courses and paint workshops. I am proud to say I’m a cheerleader to so many creative entrepreneurs. Encouraging women to dig deeper and reach higher has become a true love for me.

When I’m not painting, you can find me at a baseball park with my husband, Matt, watching one or both of our sons, Elijah and Holden.
