Jayasri Burman (born 1960 in Calcutta) is a contemporary Indian artist. She studied at the Kala Bhavan in Shantiniketan, and the Visual College of Art, Kolkata. She went to Paris and studies print-making under Monsieur Ceizerzi.

She is a member of an extended family of eminent artists: Her husband, Paresh Maity; uncle Sakti Burman who lives and works in France, though he is considered an Indian artist; and her cousin, Maya Burman.

Burman works mainly in watercolor, using rich strong hues and bold themes with a mythic element depicting strange hybrid animals with human heads, female figures. She has won several prizes for her art. Her work has been exhibited in India, and overseas.
