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.

The body of work describes the physical presence of Indigenous women shaping the future.  Kiertzner depicts the symbols of not only of their struggles but also their emotional endurance through inclusion of portals of release. The optical mixing of fiber as brushstrokes echo the inevitable social pressures and work to illustrate the creation emerging from disintegration and impermanence. Here, artist's palette becomes a conduit, painting a picture where the cycles of loss and renewal that are mirrored both in the human journey and the eternal dance of the Earth.

Kiertzner plays with the juxtaposition of colors familiar to her generation and how they relate to values in her own tribal visual dialogue. Highly saturated, vibrant colors of the 80’s are familiar culturally toward the natural subject matter.
