About my name

Just thought I'd write a brief blurb about why I sign my paintings "Anna Rose" and not "Anna Bain" or "Anna Rose Bain."

Growing up, I always liked my middle name, "Rose." I didn't even mind my last name of "Holsclaw" - it was a good strong German name that was very uncommon. However, I always knew that I wanted to get married and follow the tradition of changing my last name to my husband's. So even as a little girl, I would sign my drawings and doodles with "Anna Rose."

Years later, I am married, with a much shorter and simpler last name (!), but I still sign my work under "Anna Rose." I think it has a nice ring to it. My first name is only "Anna," but I like it when people call me Anna Rose. That is my artist name - always has been, always will be. :-)
