    Artist Biography

    Carissa PenmanCarissa Penman grew up with a passion for horses, riding trails with her parents, dancing ballet, and playing the flute. Her time volunteering with a program called “TEAD” (The Equestrian Association for the Disabled) led her to explore equine therapy. A few years ago she started creating handmade jewelry under Creatively Carissa’s Handcrafted Boutique. In 2016, her daughter’s horse, Coral, inspired her to start using horseshoes as photo frames. From there, she further explored the medium to create art, décor, dream catchers and wind chimes from recycled horseshoes and leather gear. In December 2017, her business name changed to Dreams Recycled.
