I have been in the art and design business for many years and have worked in many markets along the way.
My passions for as long as I can remember have been creating and collecting, while other kids were playing with dolls I was making them and hunting for vintage ones.
I have been surrounded by artists my whole life and recently my family held a Carter family retrospective exhibition that spanned 4 generations.
I started my career as an editorial illustrator for one of the local newspapers in my hometown of Vancouver BC, Canada and have never looked back. From extensive projects for the advertising and publishing industries to children’s book illustration, art for packaging and Canadian stamp design my illustration career has been both challenging and rewarding.
My dream of licensing my artwork for use on products for resale is now a natural culmination of my many years as an artist and designer. I chose to name my company Lily Ashbury because I feel it embodies the feminine and lively quality I believe my designs evoke. Thank you for your interest in my work and please contact me if you would like to discuss licensing or custom imagery. I am pleased to offer a full-service design studio.
