How does an artist/designer forge a "signature style"?

I've always had a problem with finding a "signature style". How does an artist / designer (even filmmaker) go about having one? Is it a natural progression from one's interests or preferences, or is it more of a calculated choice? My problem is that I am a chameleon, and my work is very eclectic since I mastered a lot of different styles which makes me virtually unidentifiable. I've always had the project dictate the suitable style, but I realized that this got in the way of finding a unique voice in the midst of a very noisy market. [more inside]

It will hide things (computer monitor etc) some of the time and be 'rolled' away the rest of the time. I can purchase an image/print/painting, commission something or... I have no idea where to begin. Can you help? [more inside]
