Spencer is a shared owner of The Bodhi Tree Art School & Studio with Heather Hogan-Spencer their best friend Kathy Bowes and many other adjunct artists and healers. It is a school, a place to dream and to grow. It is a working art studio that is open for all to discover the wonder of the fine arts and world cultures. We use the study of cultures as a way to explore who we are and our relationships with others. But most of all, it is a space that allows everyone to discover what is extraordinary in each person.
