Mahathi so far has only painted for herself. Rather late in life, but she wanted to take her passion further. She is currently polishing her talent training under an established local artist. These works, however are her own, from conceptualization to finish. Her head is full of umpteen ideas.

Time permitting, she hopes to put all of them down on a canvas. Her surroundings are her inspiration – She is fortunate to live at a place which has plenty of greenery in Hyderabad, the Cantonment area with innumerable trees and birds and in a house with a pretty garden. She has done some work with cloth, (patchwork) too.
