Jeannette Unite has exhibited in bienials and art museums in Germany, Beijing, Lyon. She travels to mining and industrial sites for samples, to research and photographically record evidence of the residual remains of power, industrialisation and neo-colonialism on the African landscape. She studied towards a BA Fine Art at the Michaelis School of Art, University of Cape Town from 1981 until 1986, and studied further at UNISA. Her works can be found in collections of art of Universities and Museums of North America, Africa, Asia and Europe. Her empirical research on African landscape were possible due to some grants and artistic fellowships offered by Kellogg's Foundation, Art Moves Africa (AMA), Centre for Curating the Archive, University of Cape Town, Mzansi Golden Economy Grant, and National Arts Council, South Africa.
