At Visakhapatnam, she channelised her artistic bent by undergoing a course with Ms
Jumana Topiwala in oil painting and from Ms Rani Rao in Tanjore paintings.
Soon she was on her own, creating pretty pictures in water
colours, dry pastels, oil paints, fabric paints, stained glass painting,
Minakari, Tanjore and Tanjore glass painting etc. Art work is not restricted to merely
painting; embroidery, ceramic works, artefacts and candle-making are also her pursuits.
Flowers and sceneries interest her immensely and she tries to capture it in its various moods. The colours she selects are natural, bright and realistic, more in tune with the subjects she portrays. Human expressions are
tough to sketch while flowers in fabric paints are much easier to paint, she says.
Padmasri has offered her skills at a crafts session organised
at MVP Public School and at some other occasions. Collective exhibition of her works along with others is a project she will pursue in the near future.
She offers to teach students in batches at home and can be contacted at
