Madeleine Winch is an Australian artist whose work, in my opinion, has steadily improved until now she doing her best work. I’m not sure if she earns enough from her art to make a good living, but a lot of people enjoy her work and love to have it on their walls.
If you have one of her works, at much less cost than the cheapest Warhol, you can continue to enjoy her work in the simplest, purest sense. If you have a Warhol, your appreciation might be distracted by its monetary value, and like with shares, you may have that daily preoccupation with its value going up or down.
