Born in Baltimore, Maryland in 1948, Ginda Ayd Simpson is one of twelve children. She has lived in Italy, Germany and Egypt and has traveled extensively in Europe, the Middle East, Africa, India, Russia and in China. Married to Michael Simpson, Ginda and her husband have three married daughters and four grandchildren.

Educated in the United States and Italy, Ginda has degrees in Italian and French and an Associate of Fine Arts Degree. In addition to private art studies for many years, she also trained at the Glassell School of Art in Houston.

In 1987 in New Orleans she won first place in the citywide American-Italian Extempo Competition in Graphics, and again in the 1988 Competition she placed first with a watercolor painting. Both prize-winning paintings are now in the Collection of the American-Italian Renaissance Foundation in New Orleans.

In 1992 Ginda had a solo exhibition of her paintings “Hill Towns of Italy” at the Cloister Gallery in Houston and at the Italian Cultural Center.

Ginda currently resides with her husband in the Umbrian countryside where she is daily inspired to record the beauty that surrounds her new home - with her pen or with her paintbrush. Ginda has continued to exhibit her paintings in Egypt as well as in Italy. Ginda is a past member of the West Bank Art Guild, the Degas Pastel Society and the Cairo Art Guild. She has written travel stories for Travel Today Egypt, Travel Today Arabia, Horus Magazine and writes monthly for BCA Magazine, Cairo.
