Inspired through the eyes of her great aunt Delilah W. Pierce. Spence was encouraged to "Paint What You See". Spence owns her own handcrafted card business, Wanda’s Brushworks (f/LUWAN Creations) founded in 2012. Spence’s entrepreneurial spirit comes from her family lineage, education, and a combined 25 years of experience in the creative arts and business industries.
As an artist, Spence is inspired by nature and vibrant colors. Spence reflects on her years of attending DC Public Schools and learning how to make Christmas wreaths in IBM Cards. Her elementary art teacher encouraged her to make and sell the wreaths. Each paper wreath sold for $5. Spence’s great aunt Delilah was so proud, she encouraged her to continue doing projects to develop her artistic talent and entrepreneurial spirit. Spence remembers her art projects in junior & senior high school, where she created science projects. Spence's work would always be awarded for the artistic creativity of the science project. Spence was also part of several DC summer art programs painting murals throughout Washington, DC.
