The importance of lighting the right ... inside and out

Janet Lennox Moyer, FIALD, COLD, an internationally known lighting designer and recipient of many design awards, lived and worked on the West Coast for nearly 20 years before moving back to the East Coast in 1997. She has judged lighting competitions, been published extensively in magazines, newspapers, and books. She has taught all over the world since serving as teaching assistant for her undergraduate lighting course at Michigan State University. Ms. Moyer’s practice has included interior, commercial, and residential lighting, but her emphasis shifted to landscape lighting in 1983.

Jan taught landscape lighting at UC Berkeley and Rutgers University in the Landscape Continuing Education departments during the 1980s and the 1990s. Jan studied plant identification, plant propagation and pathology, garden design and layout at UC Berkeley, Merritt College, and local Extension courses for years. Jan became interested in plants while in college at Michigan State University, while working in the greenhouses. She developed a cactus and succulent greenhouse and garden on her property in Northern California.
