BiographyEUS is a synonym for Erlinde Ufkes Stephanus. I was born in 1962 in Amstelveen, near Amsterdam in the Netherlands. Since 1986 I live in Oostwold, in the province Groningen. I consider my life to be very rich. I am energetic and can see the humour in life, which you often can see in my work. Personally I see my work as very lively and to the point. I paint nearly every day; it is as if I’m 'hooked'. I myself consider my work to be drawings/paintings with a high degree of ADHD. The next quote depicts the way people see my work: 'She’s got a very special/personal style of painting. The use of colours is explosive. They are mostly simple themes; strong feelings hidden in a rough style. Her dynamic vision is crucial to her work. The longer you look at her paintings, the more beautiful they become. When you see them in real life, they are prettier than the pictures you see here. Please visit my website:

I'm feeling the vibes from your work! Stevens


Merry Christmas and a wonderful happy new year!


I am going to tell you a story of Painter. H e lives in a small apartment very Spartan. Piles of paintings. Even his studies were fun. But he loved the role of the aging Irish artist. Good man. We have the best Irish in the world hear in America, I still say the Indians were here first. Nice people too. I am very proud to be an American. Funny I also think of us as a colony. I have been looking at all your paintings and the talent is the entire spectrum of mediums. It is a pleasure to be amongst your. I am honored to be amongst you. There are imaiges here I am envious that that I did not create them and I love them. My Irish buddy in Cincinnati had 4,000 paintings removed from stretchers and was friends with a nun. Every room was piles of paintings.. Was accused of hit and run on the way to his house but that is a whole other story. That is story of Painter. In some gallery I have here. All sleep well. TOX


that pic was right before I went into a lockdown ward. Funny, people in a lockdown can be very nice to on another. When my money was good and I detoxed in Braddock ghetto hospital, I bought extra packs of smokes so no one had to do without during 'smoking period'. Although there are some dangerous people there, we don’t threaten each other and try to support one another. They almost killed me in that ward. I was running 250 over 170 blood pressure, they did nothing for it, catapress a cheep blood pressure pill would have worked . Funny I ate a few Vicodan and a line of coke in the detox at Western ward. Nice hospital with good staff and the food is calorie rich. they figger it might have been some time since you ate. It is sort of sitting with a Rome doctorate RC priest smoking good herb and talking new old testament. Had to take a friend to the hospital. Used to be a brilliant man. Undergrad com loda in Latin and Greek, Passed the Bar Exam, lawyer. He now takes 600 to 1000 milligrams of methadone at a time and mixes it with valium and promethazine( a god damn motion sickness pill?). He gets as high as a person can and not die. He is falling apart. I think he could easily die within the next year Got him into a hospital but his, I would call her a pig especially when it comes to drugs, girlfriend gets him sighed out is one day AMA. She is concerned that this hubbub night interfere with the ability of them continue to obtain large quintiles of drugs at a time through a legitimate doctor It took me an hour to dress him and I had to put clean underwear on him and clean pants. And he was dead weight white as a ghost. You wish you could save people from there fates. My heart fell from my chest when I got to the hospital and he was no there. Hope your mellowing out and my Christian beliefs’ do not freak you out. I have a friend that was so bad he was dissolving rock cocaine with vinegar and IV injecting it? Ever now and then he would call me and ask if I would bring him a pack of smoke. Then I would give him some cash and promise me would spend it on food. I would walk to the grocery with him. He is off dope and looking like a new man. I hope my showing up and letting him know he was not judged by me. That if there is a god he loves him no less than anyone else. He is not an evil man, easy to like. It also showed him I cared, someone cared. Been a long day, got a new washing machine.. New hat, will post a pic . You aren’t eating a lot of sea food are you? It is loaded with mercury and will suppress your immune system. If you go to the FDA web site you can see ho much fuckig mercury there is in these fish. No more that on can a of tuna a week is the limit. As you judge so will you be judged. Hope your world is rocking, TOX

Amazing paintings for 2007. My favorite is "Dazzling Beauty" is stunning. Keep up the good work. I just finished a new creation called "Gate of Heaven", tell me what you think.


Hello, Erlinde, I haven't been by here for a while and I'm sure glad I finally made it back. I love your "Peace Offering". We can't have peace too soon. Best wishes, Robbie.


Enjoy my videos----


The background for all this started as my marriage started to break down and I left behind successful, elite fitness trainer, truly the best. This was due to her wanting to advance her career we moved to Florida. Were in the employment of the Babcock, Timber barons and family company. We were promised a $200,000 salary; things fell apart in a very ugly way, family coup de tete. The Babcock’s are pond scum. My ex grabbed a job in Phoenix and we moved to that hell hole. I do not like to live in the desert to put it mildly and every thing was corporate. I have always worked for myself and do not fit well in a corporate organization. Tried several jobs and either walked away before I was fired or , Often fired . I was becoming finacialy dependen on her and did not like it nor resentment of it. I pulled muscle in working as a fitness trainer for a corporate place and went to a doctor for this simple pulled muscle and he gave me a massive amount of percosets (oxy-codone) and was hooked from there on out. My marriage was slipping as she became more corporate and I more of an addict. She was becoming very abusive. Sometimes physically as well as mentally. I was loosing my self and becoming very self destructive. To brief it up, I have been in a downward spire for a long time and the ground is getting near. The end of my 21 yr marriage was very very ugly and have never gotten right since then, at least I won’t need detoxed but the crack has all but killed me and I am broke and the creditors are calling. I am checking into Western State Mental Hospital tomorrow as a suicide watch. Hopefully I will end up in some sort of inpatient rehab. Just need time off the streets and some strait time. Some help with direction. Forty year ago this would have been called a nervous break down. A meltdown is a better term. Reality is so unpleasant I hit it with stronger and stronger substances in combination, 5 today including Penio Giorgio and cocaine. I cannot go on like this. Have lost 20 pounds in 3 months. I feel like I am weak for doing this and am ashamed. But I do it for others as well. Some of my friends have good connections with the institution and things could go will for me. Tomorrow I become certified crazy. Oh what a proud day. I am fearful and hopeful at the same time. My friends’ want me institutionalize for a while. So if you don’t here from me I am either dead or in the nut house. At the point of simplicity of decision, start getting back up or self annihilation. Need a lot of help, have danced on the edge so long I no longer know what normal is. I hope they will let me use my cameras in rehab. Keep paint, drawing,, gluing, sculpting, jewelling, or what ever you do. Please do not think poorly of me, I do enough of that myself. Any support you have given has been appreciated. I feel like I almost have a family here. Thank You.
