Clare joined the Ochre team shortly after completing a Bachelor of Applied Science (Horticulture) at Melbourne University in 2003.
A valued member of the design team, Clare has experience in the design, documentation and management of residential and commercial projects. Clare’s particular expertise lies in concept innovation and development, and she relishes the challenge of transforming a design brief into a unique, artistic and functional garden space. With a particular interest in the softness and life that plants bring to each garden, emphasis is given to balancing bold garden architecture with equally bold and interesting planting design. Clare also has a keen interest in waste minimization and sustainable construction, and ensures that attention is given to materials and construction techniques that are environmentally conscious and designed to last.
With open communication and liason with both clients and contractors, Clare has successfully managed numerous projects from brief development through to completion, with a high level of client satisfaction.
