Dr Tarn McLean is an artist, designer and Doctor of Philosophy (Visual Art) and founded the Australian accessories and textile company Ocre Designs in 2008. Ocre is dedicated towards sustainable manufacturing with all fabrics, wallpapers and accessories made and printed to order on shore in Australia.

Tarn's service specialises in custom designed art, working with architects and individuals to create wallpapers, fabrics and art for residential and commercial interiors. This bespoke service (now available via zoom), is a niche offering for affluent homeowners and clients who want something unique to them, who are unable to find products on the market that reflect their own design and taste.

Tarn is also the founder of Find Your Creative Why, a creative thinking course, and is currently writing a book based around discovering one's full potential through Creative Expression and Mindset. Her teaching philosophy is embedded in the importance of physically 'making', where a purposeful life, both professionally and personally is only ever attained through understanding and executing one's unique creative expression.

In 2021 Tarn will be focusing on custom designing for clients and publishing her second book on the importance of Creative Expression. She will also be launching four new fabric and wallpaper collections for Ocre Designs and preparing for an exhibition at Alexandra Lawson Gallery, Toowoomba.
