Don't love someone's art because of the person who made. Love it for it's own beauty or meaning. It's diffiult to devide them cuz they're somehow the same but not entirely. Common thing that some artist call their piece of art their children. Maybe it's the easiest way to descirbe.
Althought it's usual that artists express in art their inner self which can be weaker than the one they show for the outside. But of course it's opposite way can also be true.
You never know the things they have come trough and why they act that certain way.
Oh, and being interested in their things only by wanting them to like you is somehow miserable and disgusting.
But it's just simple an opinion.
