Rachel’s final MA project was based upon the theme of heritage. She focused upon her father’s Scottish heritage and her mother’s Burmese heritage. Rachel interlinked elements of her personal heritage and identity, drawing on significant memorabilia and architecture from childhood through to the present day. This included a collection of her grandmother’s buttons and her grandfather’s old coins mixed with drawings and patterns inspired by Stockport viaduct and Southampton City walls. Rachel was particularly interested in creating a line of reference, through imagery and design to the link with identity and the fusion of cultures; the objective of which was to create an interesting and exciting range of designs for fabrics, wall coverings and Perspex.
