Hello! I'm an animator and illustrator living in Derby, UK. I also run www.animeportraits.com where people all over the world send me their photos and I draw them anime style.
I don't update DeviantART often now but keep a lot of my old artwork and fanart on here. To see more up to date work check out www.instagram.com/mairperkins/
When I'm not animating and illustrating I love reading, watching films, playing video games (mainly Hearthstone), doodling silly things in my sketchbook, browsing Instagram, cooking vegan food (not very well), running and painting.
I live in a cosy little house bulging with book shelves with my husband and 3 cats. We got married in October 2015 in Las Vegas by a Zombie Elvis.
