"I have, over the years, been interested in the adire ornamental motifs and designs. I have been known to use indigo hue a la adire in several of my paintings. Quite recently, I have interviewed and observed the creative process of a few adire designers. This has given me a fascinating insight into the vision and intuitive aims of these artists. The lessons learnt have affirmed my belief that the creative endeavours in a particular cultural millieu are related even when there are observable differences in the character of the cultural producers."
