My Bio
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.

The last few months have been exhausting and very busy. I had to be strict and not allow myself to procrastinate online. Things have settled down and I am now allowed to play online again. I finished studying Animation at the University of Derby and have moved house. The house my boyfriend and I have moved into has a spare room which is now my studio/art room :D I'm  a very happy bunny. In August I'm starting work as a graphic designer for the University of Derby Student Union. Its part time so the plan is to do freelance work (and pointless "just for fun" art work) in the other time. My current "for fun" project is painting an A0 sized, obs

:thumb83025138: http://infurmation.com/daf/2008/daf08.php I'm ecstatic! :D I care deeply about this topic. Its a great honour for my animation to be selected. I hope it can help in some small way to stop the fur trade. University has been keeping me very busy recently. Its my third and final year of my animation course. Soon I'll have to venture out into the real world :S eep. Over the holidays I'll upload some more art work and animations/storyboards. Hope everybody had a very merry christmas x

The last few weeks have been full of minor misfortunes the worst of which being my laptop going on strike. It's ok though, I have a warranty and it has been sent away to be repaired. :bounce: It just means I'm using the university computers when I can be bothered to go in. So I'm sorry for not replying to comments and messages, its not me being impolite, just the laptop. Is anybody else going to http://chibicon.co.uk/ ? I'm going to be selling anime art work there. Most of them can be found in my DA gallery  :) Prices will be about £30 for a framed original painting and £15 for paintings without frames. So they are not prints but t
