Annie M.G. Schmidt Flow Magazine

Flow Magazine


On the last page In Flow Magazine number 1 of 2022 you can find a portrait of a big inspiration for me, the famous Dutch writer Annie M.G. Schmidt!

“Ik hou niet alleen van Annies woorden, zoals ‘bietebauw’ en ‘roezemoes ‘, maar ook van haar humor – iets wat ik ook in mijn werk probeer te stoppen. Als kind luisterde ik veel naar de verhaaltjes van Jip en Janneke, maar mijn favoriete verhaal was ‘De spin Sebastiaan’. Misschien wel omdat ik iets van de eigenwijsheid van Sebastiaan in mezelf herkende.”

“Not only do I love Annie’s words, such as ‘bietebauw’ and ‘roezemoes’, but also her humor – something I try to put in my work as well. As a child I listened a lot to the stories of Jip & Janneke, but my favorite story was ‘De spin Sebastiaan’. Perhaps because I recognized something of Sebastiaan’s stubbornness in myself.”
