Fiep Westendorp (Sophia Maria) born 17 December 1916 in Zaltbommel, Netherlands.
One of Holland’s greatest illustrators. Fiep’s individual and often humorous drawings complement Annie M.F. Schmidt’s writing perfectly. Their timeless collaboration lasted more than forty years. Fiep came up with a very distinctive illustrative style (silhouettes) for Netherland’s most popular pre-schoolers: Yip and Yannika.
