“MY PAINTINGS ARE MY DIARIES”

"Nicola SIMBARI’s words about his works . . . AND SO THEY ARE !"

PASSIONATE and CHARISMATIC
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
