Shelley Spector likens her artistic process to an anthropological study. With a primary focus on the issues of the everyday, Spector deconstructs and then reassembles common ideas, imagery and objects and recontextualizes them in prints, sculptures and installations. Themes addressed include money, legacy, tools of measurement, family, and the environment.

Among numerous collections, her work is included in the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Free Library of Philadelphia, the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, and PECO Energy, all in Philadelphia, HBO Incorporated, New York and the Human Rights Campaign Headquarters in Washington, DC. In addition to her studio work, she has served as a critic, lecturer, panelist, and curator. She ran the renowned SPECTOR Gallery in Philadelphia and it’s offshoot online anthology

Before her involvement with Philagrafika, Spector had exhibited at Civilization Gallery and Gallery Schlesinger, New York; Delaware Center for Contemporary Arts, Wilmington, DE; the Institute of Contemporary Art, Sande Webster Gallery and the Philadelphia Museum of Jewish Art, all in Philadelphia, and had been the recipient of grants from Pennsylvania Council on the Arts and Independence Foundation Fellowship. Since 2004, she has shown at Le Boite, New York, Delaware Art Museum, Wilmington, DE, Philadelphia Museum of Art, Samuel S. Fleisher Art Memorial Challenge Exhibition, the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, EKG Exhibition Space at Breadboard, Gallery Joe and Bridgette Mayer Gallery, Philadelphia.
