Scott Andrew Spencer (born 1970) is an American abstract painter.

Born in Santa Monica, California, grew up in Huntington Beach.[1] He has an Associate in Arts Degree, from Orange Coast College in Costa Mesa, California, and studied at California State University-Long Beach. In 2004 he was admitted into the Pasadena Society of Artists.

Mainly self-taught, Spencer began painting full-time after a brush with cancer, in 1999. He had all of the lymph nodes, and salivary gland, on the left side of his mouth, as well as a good portion of his tongue removed, which left him with a speech impediment that he had to work through.[1] He takes inspiration from his immediate surroundings, real or imagined, and paints into the wee hours of the night. "That's when the energy comes." He paints daily out on the balcony of his second-story condominium, in Los Angeles, California, where he loves to listen to music and delve into abstraction.

He gets artist's inspiration from Henri Matisse, Constantin Brâncuși, Max Beckmann, David Hockney, Giovanni Battista Tiepolo, and Francis Bacon.[1]

Scott Spencer is represented by Abstract Earth Gallery located in Columbus, Ohio; 123 Soho Gallery in New York, New York; PicassoMio in Madrid, Spain; Art Majeur in San Francisco, California; Period Gallery in Lincoln, Nebraska; and Galleria Jan in La Jolla, California.
