Do I need to let my collectors know about that, will the value of my sold work change? Does it mean that by starting with a new name, I will have to sell my work with a lower price? And most of all, is this a good idea to change my name? Sorry for the long mail…. Dear T. If you feel that starting over with a different name would represent better your current style, then you should do it.
Before making a drastic change, start by testing the waters. See how the public reacts. Maybe you can create new social media pages. Ask a small group of collectors what they think about these changes. If the initial feedback is good, then make the big step. Good luck! Thank you for your quick reply. How about the pricing of the new work with the new name?
Do I have to adjust it to a price of someone just starting in the art world or do I keep the pricing I have now? All best. This is very helpful information!

Why Writers Use Pen Names
Hi Jacquie, we recommend telling the buyer your birth name during the check-signing, for legal reasons. I currently work at a national museum. Each year we have an exhibit for up and coming artists. So keeping my anonymity is kind of important to me.
My question is how do I submit work under a different name for consideration to the show? Muchas gracias. Under my Perriman name I produce fairly straightforwards landscapes but the big project I have been working on since autumn will be released under a different name to avoid alienating my existing collectors.
