Mother May I? Use the tools of domesticity for sustained self expression and urban sass. 

As a textile artist I sometimes feel the confines of expressing myself through the textile medium. I am asking for permission and validation to use needlepoint tapestry as a medium to break the rules of tradition using a traditional medium.  Mother May I, is a ‘Darn Bombed’, repurposed traditional tapestry that I have roughly darned with black wool to impart urban sass and individuality.  I give myself permission to go outside the needlepoint tapestry grid.
