Brenda Jean Lusher
In 1998, Brenda Lusher, an accomplished artisan, created a boutique hand-painted tile studio in South Florida.
Brenda is a long time admirer of Addison Mizner whose Mediterranean Revival style left an indelible stamp on South Florida. She was particularly fascinated with his generous use of hand-painted tile. She traced the origins of these tiles and embarked on a life long journey across the globe to learn more about the history and production of these tiles.
She has studied with tile masters in Italy, Spain, Portugal, Holland and Morocco to learn her craft. Continued travel provides her an opportunity to rummage through old book stores and add to her extensive collection of antiquarian tile and design books. These books along with photographs featuring tile left in situ, some hundreds of years old, provide her with inspiration for new designs.
Brenda is excited to share her knowledge and passion for her craft with her clients. She feels it is important for them to understand the time involved in creating the tiles that Mizner Tile Studio produces for them.
