How long have you been on DeviantArt?
Since 2003, 11 years now, wow!
What does your username mean?
Nimrais is the actually the name of a mountain chain from the Middle Earth universe (Ered Nimrais, appeared in the Silmarillion) and means "White Horns". I liked the sound of the name and I love Middle Earth and Lord of the Rings, so that's why I decided on that nickname.

What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?
At home in my little office, surrounded by my two dogs and my boyfriend, sipping coffee and listening to some music
What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?
I don't have a specific memory, but more a collection of feelings and things I remember. The possibility to showcase my artwork, getting lovely feedback from fellow Deviants and even getting in contact with professionals, when I started my job as a freelance artist. DeviantArt helped me with all that Also, getting one of my pictures featured as a Daily Deviation when I had just started with my artwork gave me so much motivation to continue and improve!
