Berette Macaulay was born in Sierra Leone of West African/French-Dominican/German-Czech descent. She was raised in Jamaica and the UK, and is now based in the US.  Her creative background is in the performing arts as an actor, dancer, theater technician, and as a writer.  She has created, published, and/or exhibited works in Costa Rica, Germany, Hong Kong, Jamaica, UK, and in cities around the US.

Berette's portfolio is comprised of both conceptual and traditional photographic studies in portraiture, documentary, land/cityscapes, and abstract visuals.  Her creative practice also includes photo-based mixed media and installation using digital, film, alternative, and analog  processes.  She also uses her performance background and studies in psychology to develop loosely scripted abstract video narratives.  She enjoys working collaboratively on interdisciplinary projects with performers, choreographers, filmmakers, and writers.

Berette assumes the role of soul witness in her work, introspectively observing her experiences and that of others.  She is curious about the space between the self that we project to the outside world, and the secret guarded self. Her oeuvre is inspired by themes of Trans-culturalism, Memory, Spirituality, Technology,and Mythology, and their effects on our internal life and outer relationships. Berette is interested in creating work that reveals the source of human conflicts as a subversive yet therapeutic effort to resolve them. Her work is an attempt to uproot the repressed, to realize the unseen, to redefine the pragmatic, to visualize emotion.

"Recognise that you are the truth."
