Spero was born in Cleveland but spent most of her life in New York. Her work as an artist was intertwined with her life as a feminist and political activist. Much of her work depicts or references the abuse of power in its many forms, including current and historical wars, gender and race discrimination and the ugly face of Western privilege.
