“. . . the might of design, . . . the mystery of colour . .“
These Pages are a Celebration of Simbari's Art & Life
“MY PAINTINGS ARE MY DIARIES”
"Nicola SIMBARI’s words about his works . . . AND SO THEY ARE !"
he painted his life . . .
the colourful events, people and places that 'excited' him . . .
I am Elfrida Simbari, and as Nicola's wife and companion during his colourful and creative years, I am sharing with you my knowledge of SIMBARI's Art, Adventures, Life and Successes . . .
Simbari's Paintings are his diaries - - - and mine!
Along the way, in "The Diaries", you'll begin to have a glimpse of the extraordinary young girl "Elfrida Kerbey" and how her "fairytale" has continued to evolve with Nicola through the decades !!! - Elfrida's pages tell a story of an English Nomadic childhood, lived around the world from Japan, Canada and the West Indies.
** Personal Note:
Sadly, it has come to my
attention that there are Works attributed to Simbari in his later
years, which clearly have many discrepiances.
I am happy to assist in ‘providing a name’ for a work. Should you have any questions about ‘authenticity’, ‘provenance’, subject matter, and/or other information, on a SIMBARI work . . . I will be pleased to help, if it is possible. ** Contact Details
