At the heart of Kiertzner's creative exploration is a nuanced examination of critical materials that serve to recontextualize her personal history within a contemporary framework. The threads of her identity intertwine seamlessly with her art, weaving a tapestry that is both visually compelling and emotionally resonant. Drawing inspiration from the rich tradition of Mohawk Iroquois splint basket making and embroidery, Kiertzner infuses her work with a dynamic interplay of woven and stitched elements.
