An Archival Neighborhood Artist

Watch this video to find out more about an artist who paints inner city landmarks in the U street corridor of the U.S. capital.

"I am Isabelle Spicer. I come from France and I started to paint very late, only five years ago, when I was in Moscow. It was like seeing the light for the first time."

"I live in downtown Washington, D.C., it's a neighborhood which is at the border between three communities, the African-American community, the white community and the Latino community."

"I see the city and this neighborhood with fresh eyes but on the other hand I'm very well integrated here."
