Great Stories Behind The Art

I love to hear about the backstories and journeys these artists have been through. Dion is a great, authentic interviewer. The stories are fun, surprising and relatable. It’s my go-to creativity podcast. I haven’t missed an episode.

Paint talk podcast The Turquoise Iris

I just love to listen to Dionne interview other creatives!! It’s like sitting with a friend at a coffee shop kind of conversation. Her guests are from many backgrounds, with different outlooks on life, but they seem like the best of friends when they are together!! If you have a half hour, and want to get to know other creatives make sure to tune in soon… you will be happy if you do!
