Copyright © 2020  Tarn McLean and Ocre Designs


Tarn McLean is an artist and designer holding a Doctor of Philosophy in Visual Art from the University of Southern Queensland.

Her work departs from a highly disciplined practice embedded in early to mid 20th Century Geometric Abstract painting to the design of space and architecture, including wall painting and public art as well as textile, wallpaper and accessory design.

Tarn exhibits regularly and customises bespoke wallpapers and fabrics for private clients as well as commercial and residential interiors.

Her teaching philosophy "CREATIVE WHY' is informed by research into the creative processes connected to intuitive acts of making.

*This website is currently being renovated. 

We're working to have the last ten years of Tarn's practice, both art and design, compiled into one site by Easter 2020. Thank you for your patience and enjoy looking around as the site evolves.
