The talent of Leonardo and a hidden talent in my family!

- Sylvia Vetta

My talented daughter in law Elizabeth Vetta drew the Elephant for the cover of Sculpting the Elephant. Claret Press’s book designer Petya Tsankova made great use of it. I hope you like it as much as I do. I am passionate about the visual arts so my book covers are important to me. This year is the 500th anniversary of the death of Leonardo. I love his curious mind and anatomical sketches. He described one sketch as ‘nocciolo’ -seed heart. I loved reviewing the V&A exhibition

Elizabeth was an intensive care nursing sister as well as a graduate in fine art. She sometimes sketches like Leonardo.
