Jeanne-Louise Moys is a visual artist and design academic. She lives and works in West Yorkshire, England, where she enjoys creating both plein air and in her home studio. As an artist, her typical subjects include dancers, flowers, landscapes and seascapes. Her affinity for nature subjects and creating in the sunshine stems from her South African roots. Working primarily in oil, acrylic and drawing media, her gestural and expressive approach leads to a strong sense of movement and texture in her visual style.
In her academic life, she’s currently an Associate Professor in the School of Design at the University of Leeds. Her research expertise focuses on typography, graphic communication and inclusive design. Once upon a time, she worked as a graphic designer.
