In 2018, Lily  closed her Venice Beach retail shop & much-loved Lily Ashwell clothing line. For two years, she retreated into her studio to explore spiritual modalities & bring a new creative project to life called Heavenly Bodies Astrology. 

This quiet time helped Lily understand her talent as a visual storyteller. She recognized her unusual knack for communicating the world of her imagination through inspired research, drawing, & design.  And her ability to turn an ethereal energy, a feeling, into something tangible. Anything she touches is both nostalgic & fresh, soulful & distinctly “her”. This is the common thread between all of her creative endavors & why Heavenly Bodies Astrology blends so seamlessly into her world.
