I am a fan of yours


Do you agree that I am a fan of yours can mean both,


1) I am one of your fans.
2) I am a fan of your movies, books, etc.


And then do we distinguish one from the other in context? But context can be totally the same and then it does not matter to understand either one in the same context? 


Thank you so much in advance.

I would say that they are usually the same.  When one is a fan, they often associate the person and the work so closely together that there is no distinction.  I suppose you could love a person's works, but really not like the person at all.  In that case, you'd probably be very careful to say, "I am a fan of your work." The opposite could be true, too.  You could love a person (such as a family member) but not like their art.
