Of her work Spector states:

My work acts as a magnifying glass for the familiar. Most recently I have used digital prints … to look at everyday objects, like television remotes, matches, dollar bills and pencils. I pay homage to these unsung heroes, things we cannot live without, that tend to be the visual equivalent of white noise.

… Through the process of image documentation and manipulation, I record and create changes in meaning, appearance, and context, which enables me a way to both unravel and redefine it. Individually, they are a forced study of the mundane, things easily overlooked in a world that loves big, fantastic and new.

Spector lives and works in Philadelphia, Her prints are in the collections of the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, and the Free Library of Philadelphia. She is a recipient of the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts awards, 1999, 2000 and the Independence Foundation Fellowship in the Arts, 2004.
