Karen Stienstra


Creating with my hands has always been an integral part of my life. I acquired my love of painting while taking a painting class with Karen Huehold, so much fun.

I still paint in watercolour but also acrylic. I gravitate towards landscape and animal paintings, which comes from growing up on a farm in central Alberta.


Route 22 Gallery is located on the land of the Treaty 7 people. In the spirit of respect, reciprocity and truth, we honour and acknowledge the Treaty 7 territory and the cultural and oral practices of the Îyâxe Nakoda and Tsuut’ina nations as well as the Blackfoot confederacy: Siksika, Kainai, Piikani. We acknowledge that this territory is home to the Métis Nation of Alberta, (Métis Nation District 4) within the historical Northwest Métis homeland. It is a privilege and and an honour to share these lands as our collective home.

Route 22 is an inclusive organization. We love our gallery – all are welcome here.
