I've been painting as 'Scarlett' for a few years now, but I think I'm about to go back to my real name - Kate Lightfoot.
I really just started using Scarlett, because it was easier when writing on the Etsy forums for people to call me by my shop name.
But if a potential customer googles 'Scarlett' they get this:
Now it would be nice if that were me (particularly nice for Bill) , but it isn't.
So to make it easier for people to track me down, to make it easier for me to explain who I am to galleries and for the sake of honesty, I'm pretty sure I'm going to be signing my art with a 'k' from now on and going by 'Kate Lightfoot'.
I'd love some feedback on this as it's doing my head in and keeping me up at night.
