SONYA DIIMMLER

Award winning artist Sonya Diimmler paints colorful South Carolina lake and landscapes along with her favorite subject and muse her bulldog Smedley. Having just started painting in 2015, Sonya fell in love with the process and quickly began a daily painting practice.  She continually seeks to improve through frequent workshops and has studied with Mary Bentz Gilkerson and Michael Story and of course her Mother, Ann Sweeney.  In 2016 she joined the Crooked Creek Art League in Chapin where she served first as Workshop Coordinator and then President and currently serves as Parliamentarian.
