Vangile Gantsho

Freelance Artist/Writer – “I don’t suffer from insanity. I thoroughly enjoy it. You’re just jealous coz the voices only speak to me.” -I’m crazy enough to be loads of fun – sane enough not to be locked up (…well, permanently that is..) smart enough to hold my own – and shallow enough to not be a bore!
