Ocre Designs Magnolia cushions and lampshade.


Turning art into beautiful designs to wear and live with. 

Artist Tarn McLean PhD, (Visual Art), established the accessories and fabric label Ocre Designs in 2008. Initially creating limited edition handbags lined with hand painted fabrics, Ocre has grown into a textile and wallpaper company. All ready-to-purchase wares are adorned with Tarn's original artwork and printed sustainably as print to order.

Each collection is inspired by colours from nature as well as botanical paintings made by her great, great grandfather Adam Forster which are held in the Australian National Library.

Tarn's growing practice has emerged from the canvas to the design of interior spaces. Her company now offers a customised design service, working one-on-one with clients to transform their stories into art, fabric and wallpapers resulting in unique and beautiful interiors for both residential and commercial clients.
