From January 2008, McFetridge began to produce shortfilm documentaries to accompany each of her works, giving the audience an entré into her painting process andan interpretation of each particular piece.

She has also begun a series of abstract works extending her previous themes with a greater emphasis on the deconstruction ofabstract forms

As McFetridge explains, 'I am fascinated by space, contrast and texture, and I find painting land, sea and skyscapes a fabulous mechanism to explore this. Growing up surrounded by blacksand beaches and the native bush in Taranaki has left a strong imprint on my creativity. I'm inspired by the moodiness and dramaof the west coast of the North Island, its ability to create asense of stillness and evoke a peacefulness within, which is reflected in my work.“
