About the Speaker:
Janet Lennox MoyerJanet Lennox Moyer, FIALD, AOLP, COLD, 2018 IES Trailblazer & Icon, 2017 Michigan Lighting Hall of Fame
Jan began her lighting design career in 1976, working on many diverse projects, from the Defense Intelligence Agency’s first home in Washington, DC to winery caves, entertainment gardens, and botanical gardens. She began specializing in landscape lighting in the mid-1980s and wrote the essential book used around the world, “The Landscape Lighting Book”, first released in 1992 and now in its third edition (pub. 2013), integrating the disruptive technology LED, publisher John Wiley & Sons.

Sharing lighting knowledge is important to Jan. She began teaching in undergraduate school at Michigan State University, next at the University of Michigan, then at The Academy of Art, SF, UC Berkeley, Rutgers, and the Lighting Research Center, among others.

She founded The International Landscape Lighting Institute, ILLI, a 501(C)(3) educational non-profit still providing landscape lighting education classes in the U.S. and abroad.
Jan met George Gruel, graphic designer and photographer, during the last month of revisions for the second edition book in 2004. They married in 2005 and George produced a book of Jan’s lighting projects called “She Paints with Light” to help people visualize landscape lighting. Currently, Jan is finishing the last of 20 videos for a new educational platform that Garden Light LED is producing with the IES called Learn•Night•Light. Jan and George live in Rio Verde, Arizona.
Jan remains committed to sharing her knowledge and striving to raise the bar for the landscape lighting industry, as she would love everyone to be able to enjoy our planet’s garden spaces after dark.
