Lois Merrill was born and raised in Columbus, Ohio. She moved here with her husband, Dr. Timothy Merrill, in 1980 to start his dental practice.

They have two sons, Joe and Rich, who both graduated from Newcomerstown High School and are college graduates.

Tim recently retired from his dental practice. Joe lives in Columbus working for the City of Columbus. Rich lives in Delaware, Ohio and works as a radiology medic tech.

Lois is a nurse and art therapist and works for Hospice of Guernsey, Inc. doing reflexology and art therapy.

“I’ve always liked being creative from gardening, sewing, painting, jewelry, and pottery,” Lois said. “I only started to paint seriously about 20 years ago. Lately I’ve been making pottery, wind chimes, crystal sun catchers, and oil paintings. I’m also doing a weaving workshop and stepping memory stones for the bereaved at the hospice.”

“I think of the creative arts, like music, dance, poetry, art, and drama, as healing. They help us express what words sometimes cannot say, or when words are simply not enough. I like to think they bring out our joy; joy in life, love of nature, family, friends, and faith.”

“Sharing my paintings and art is sharing a part of me that I hope people will enjoy.”
