My name is Birgit Geesing-Madsen. I was born in Denmark and grew up in an idyllic landscape with hills, forests and streams. As a child, I often entertained myself with pencils, coloured chalk and paper and was frequently found playing and on discovery in the surrounding nature.

In the course of years I have followed courses in model drawing, aquarelle, oil painting and anthroposophic artistic cultivation in both Denmark and The Netherlands, but mostly I have improved through self-study.

For my oil and aquarelle paintings, I often choose moods of nature. Light in nature has a central place in my art. For me, my paintings are "windows to light" - hence the name "Lichtvenster" (light-window). My interests are especially the mystique in nature, shaping inner images, and the lightworld of the angels.
