Hi. best I can make of this is an orb weaver, Araneidae family. Not much for an indoor spider, little in food for them. Harmless spiders, I had a video in the making how to keep these indoors like pets, may not get completed.
This is a big family, here is one genus, possibly what your little friend is:

Hi, she looks like Araneus marmoreus, a marbled orbweaver. I can’t see her body, I’m going by the pattern of colors of her leg markings. This species is red/white near the body to black/white near the feet.
