Welcome to my page! I am Irina aka Shennikin. I've had DA account for many years but I used it to look at amazing art represented here. Couple of years ago I decided to share some of my own works. I’d started creating photo manipulations almost 5 years ago. At first, I followed “step-by-step” tutorials from YouTube and other sites. Actually, I spent a lot of time on those works and my skills were improving slowly. What is more, I can’t even call them my works, because those ideas weren’t mine. In 2019, I saw some amazing photomanipulation and it really inspired me. Sadly, I don’t remember who the author was. I felt like creating something similar. As I couldn’t find a tutorial I tried to create an artwork using my knowledge and skills only. Since then, I haven’t used video tutorials much. I don't think, I can call myself an artist. I like to use photos of my nieces taken by me.
