Lowell was a very talented and successful graphic artist and art teacher at many places (e.g., Yale School of Art; University of Connecticut, Storrs, Chicago Art Institute). He received a MFA from the Yale School of Art in 1973. His love of the arts including music, the visual arts, movies, theater, and literature was deep and broad. His knowledge of art history was also impressive. He loved traveling to large cities such as New York whenever possible and made sure that he visited as many art galleries and museums as possible.

Ellice explains, “Lowell's first name was Myron but he never used this name at Oberlin. His brother posted an obit in the Oberlin Alumni magazine under the wrong graduation year (1968) and under the name Myron L. Peyton.” The following obituary, however, comes from his birthplace of Wooster, Ohio.
