She acquired the skill of painting by herself. She was forced to keep aside, her favourite hobby of painting for a few years because of her busy schedule as a doctor. Now she is trying to find more time to invest in her much-loved hobby. Acrylic is her preferred medium. At first, she concentrated more on portraits. Now her area of interest has shifted to contemporary and abstract works. She is keen to explore and experiment with new styles which is evident from her latest works.
Dr Jayasree, who arrived Britain four years ago, now lives in Greater Manchester with her family and practices as an ophthalmologist. She is married to Dr Sujith Menon, an orthopaedic surgeon. The couple has two daughters.
