In January 2016 Katrina was selected for a solo 'Art of Katrina Mcgettigan' 2017 calendar, which is now available for sale online, in bookstores and businesses throughout New Zealand.
In October 2015 Katrina was one of six other artists in NZ to be selected for a limited edition Bio-cup Art Series in Australia. Over 250,000 takeaway coffee cups were produced with Katrina's painting on it and they were sold from various cafes throughout Austrailia and New Zealand. Earlier in August 2015 one of Katrina's paintings was selected for 2016 Artists Impressions of NZ Calendar.

Katrina is inspired by the breathtaking landscapes within her region of Canterbury and the wider South Island. Over the course of her career Katrina has developed a stronger more refined style by experimenting with a wide range of moods, colours and light to depict many landscape and native bird scenes. Katrina's paintings can be viewed online or at her newly opened gallery - 'Kat's Art Studio', 232 Main South Rd, Christchurch.
Katrina accepts commissions.
