A mindful Art Story 

Artist, Creative coach & Meditation teacher 

Hi! I'm Valentina, some friends call me Pitu

 A curious being who started this journey of self discovery over 11 years ago. I am committed to following my curiosity and to guiding others in this journey too. I used to love painting when I was younger, but no one ever told me I was good at it. So I stopped. But the funny thing was that throughout my uni degree Art was the space I went when I needed to feel held, but I didn’t realise this until years later. Art is not about being good at it. It's not about talent. For me art is about self expression and connection with our hearts. This is why now I encourage everyone to create. I truly believe that art can have a positive impact on your wellbeing as I experienced it first hand with myself and with the students and clients I've worked with in the past five years. 

My podcast is out! Monthly readings of my Art Letters 💌 and chats in which I share my journey as a creative and as a Mindful art coach.

Art and Healing

After being a full time teacher for 10 years, I experienced burnout. My body could no longer show up to the things I enjoyed or cared about and I knew it was time for a change. So I started painting again. I was already a meditation teacher so I started to blend mindfulness and art naturally. Just exploring how I felt and using different tools to connect with my deepest desires. I realised that when I meditated before creating, I was aware of my mind and I found that my creative time was a space to rewrite my story and my beliefs about who I was. 

I believe that creating art is all about the journey. When we paint and practice mindfulness something changes. We start to become more aware of our thoughts and to delve deeper into who we are. My mision is to create safe spaces for you to connect with your creativity and to share art that comes from this inner journey. 

A bit about my background 

I am a trained coach, meditation and yoga teacher and self-taught artist. I have done meditation courses for 10 years and I have completed 300 hours yoga teacher trainings and Meditation teacher trainings (70 hours). I am passionate about using creative approaches to learning and to use Mindful Art as a tool to connect with yourself. Mindful Art can have a positive impact on our wellbeing and the connection with our bodies. As a coach, I create safe spaces for you to experience this connection and delve deep into the world of meditation and art. 

Before starting Pitu Studio, I was a full time English teacher who specialised in supporting neurodivergent students.
