As soon as Christmas is over, we start to review our year, and plan for 2015, some of us can start to feel more anxious as the new year draws near.

This week is the last week of my exhibition in Waterstones in Salisbury.
It has been a thoroughly pleasant experience, stress free and enjoyable.
All the work was completed sometime ago and the process of hanging your own work is a joy.
I take down any unsold work on the 20th April.
My next exhibition is just around the corner.
Good friend and fellow artist, Sally Firino, and I will be exhibiting in the main exhibition space in the Fisherton Mill Gallery Cafe in Salisbury throughout May. There will be some larger work on display that has not been exhibited before.
New year, new start and all that.
Over the Christmas holidays and festivities I've had the time to catch up with friends and family. Various conversations started with "How's the art going Lou?"
'Jolly well thanks', but hang on, they all said "Lou"…mmm that's got me thinking.
Everyone calls me Lou.
Or Lu. Or Lulu.
Even my Mum calls me Lulu.
Hardly anyone calls me Louise. Even my sixth form students, when wanting to be a little less formal, but not too disrespectful, have taken to calling me "Mrs Lutes".
So why am I officially known as Louise Luton when it comes to being an artist? And should I consider changing it?
I think that Lu Luton looks a bit neater than Lou Luton.
This might also be more memorable for people and easier to look up.
LuLu Luton might be fun but could be problematic. Potential customers and fellow artists might ending up typing in far too many "Lu"s whilst trying to find me over the tinterweb. Lulululuton. Who knows where it might end!
We all know that Branding is really important, but surely my name is only a tiny part of my brand.
What do you think? Have you changed your name in business because it sounded better? Alternatively have you stuck to your true name, because there is value in being truthful in business?
Should I change?
Would it be more memorable?
How much of a difference would it really make?
You comments would be valuable to me.
