Change of name (for use with my art)

I have decided to use a different name now. My maiden name used to be Peršin,

When I got married I changed it to Reid, but to my dismay have found that I have given up an unusual name to find I share my name with countless others, some of whom are not only artists but also photographers. This means people searching for me are thinking I am someone else.  I was prompted to reintroduce my maiden name alongside my married name, after starting a new project about my father and the death pits in Slovenia. This will be a long project and it will be useful to me to have my Slovenian surname back, to make it easier to approach people in Slovenia. Plus, it will now be harder to be mistaken for someone else!

I am an artist working with photography. I like to work by using performance and then photographing the performance. I seem to be increasingly using the moving image alongside the photographs. I spent over 15 years working in mental health, whilst also practising art in a studio in Spitalfields market. I then became involved in regeneration projects and was one of the team who won a lottery grant for Hastings Pier to be rebuilt. I am now concentrating more on my art practice.
