Artist seeks to escape past: please advise.

I am an artist with an hell of demons in my past, who wants to start a website for my work without any of said demons tracking me down via google. So... I would like to start using a professional pseudonym, without changing my real name legally. How simple/complicated is this, and how do I go about it?

If I ever sell anything, will the checks need to be written to my real name? (Do Prince's paychecks say "Prince Rogers Nelson"?) Really, my main concern is being able to publish and copyright work without anyone who knows my birth name being aware of my artwork, and I'd like to do everything legally and correctly. Any suggested resources are welcome. Thanks!
