Moody was trained at the Royal Academy Schools, co-founded the New Kingston Group of painters and taught at Wimbledon School of Art in the early 1930's. However he is better remembered as a theatre and opera producer as well as Director of the Arts Council's Drama department. He took over Eric Ravilious's and Edward Bawden's studio in the late 1920's and he worked closely with Robert Medley and John Piper. He was badly injured during the Blitz which affected his painting ability, which is why his early work is particularly interesting.
