This woman is taking loads of old antique plates and painting modern celebrities and icons on them. I think they're kinda cool, but does it devalue the plates?

I love these so much! I went and looked up the artist Angela Rossi. She describes the plates as 'unwanted' so I assume they're not worth much to begin with?

I suppose if they become pieces of art in their own right the value might rise? She appears to be selling them for $100-$200 so it looks that way! As plates I imagine they would have been cheaper despite being antique.
