  A Special Invitation

Open House/Art Studio Party





Please come and join Susan Risse (a.k.a.:Glitter Gypsy )pool-side

at her Open House/Art Studio Party 6:00pm on August 27,2011.

Glitter Gypsy  is opening her house and art studio located at:

1007 Kaluanui Rd. in

Hawaii Kai, HI 96825.

 Celebrating her latest and upcoming

“Women’s Creative Spirituality Workshops!”

 Come and meet Glitter Gypsy in person, roam

around the studio and lanais,  rubbing elbows

with the artist and her guests. Get a real “feel” for her, the art and her

mission. Feel free to ask questions about the art, the workshops and her high-

er purpose. 

Relax and enjoy a glass of wine or a soft drink with some pupus.

              Bring a friend, everyone is welcome!

“Art is the mirror of the soul.”


I will be offering a series of 4 workshops this fall.

Every workshop will have a different theme and you
will leave with a finished piece of art, which YOU created!
Our art will be “Soul-Centered & Heart-Created.” This
means: that we’re not just trying to paint or create
something “pretty,” we are actually going to dig way down deep into our
souls and find out what it is we need to express and then create it from
our hearts.
NO ART CRITICS will be there, so FEEL FREE to explore your conscious
and subconscious feelings, enabling you to express and create
whatever you would like. A nurturing and inspiring
environment will allow you to create freely without judgment.
I can’t wait to meet you all!!!
