Heijtmajer was born 1942 in Amsterdam and studied sculpture at the Escuela de Artes Aplicadas in Madrid, Spain, from 1964-1969. From 1974 to 1978 she studied graphic design and painting at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie Amsterdam. She has been exhibited in many solo and group exhibitions in Europe and Asia. Her aesthetic is fitting to the work shown at the Museum of Geometric and MADI art.
MADI is a great artistic adventure, and perhaps, the only existing movement which can justify half a century of existence. MADI is more than an avant-garde movement; it has an underlying wave with several and differing offspring. It is the slow-paced growth of a tectonic plate in the history of art. Indeed, since art and environment are perveived as the fusion of two cultural phenomena, the progression and expression of both of these blend in everyday life.
