My Name

Here I am sitting at the computer and submitting my art to organizations, e-mailing people etc., when my dear husband looks up at me from his computer (he is helping me with a press release) and tells me. "You should use only your first name as your artistic name. It is so complicated for many people, that just first name, which is unique, will be enough for them to remember."

So now I am sitting here and thinking about his point and questioning myself - how do I sign my artwork then. Until now I signed my art with my last name only, which is also fairly unique - not too many artists with that name. Should I listen to my husbands idea? Would love to know people's opinion.

  1. I have always used and still do sign with my first name only. So, if you ask me, I would tell you, go ahead and use your first name...and your husband is right, your name is unique... at least in this end of the woods and is a lovely name!!!
