JYXDI, Self-Taught Painter To Artist Making Her Mark


Jyothee Murali, better known by her moniker JYXDI, is a self-taught visual artist. She started drawing at the age of two and began painting by the time she was ten years old.

“Everything around me is inspirational. Nature, the environment and people. I use all those factors and incorporate it into my artwork.” 


From the desire to create art as a passion, two years ago JYXDI was born; a business venture for commissioned art pieces. Though painting is her primary pursuit, Jyothee collaborates with other artists as well, working on creative projects that take her outside of the scope of her paintings. She also works at Pinot’s Palette as an art instructor, teaching over 50 students at a time.


When asked about the best part of being an independent artist, Jyothee said that she loves working on her own schedule and being her own boss; these rewards come in exchange for deadline driven projects, that require working under pressure for  weeks at a time, but she wouldn’t have it any other way.

“Always practice. There’s always room to learn. Every time I pick up my paintbrush I learn something new. You don’t need a teacher to guide you. You can learn anything and everything on your own as long as you put your mind to it.”
