My name is Emma Whitehouse-Bird, I am currently studying Theatre Design at Nottingham Trent University. My favourite artist is the Spanish surrealist painter Salvador Dali (1904-1989), his best-known, ‘The Persistence of Memory’ (1931), inspired me to incorporate a great deal more symbolism into my work, in order to provoke and make audiences evaluate art in greater detail. My hobbies include ballet, for which I became involved in many performances in small theatres, badminton, swimming, and playing the trumpet.
