They take huge inspiration from colour and nature, and split their time between illustrating beautiful books, and designing gorgeous products for their business Papio Press. Oana Befort, is a Romanian-born graphic artist, freelance illustrator, wife and mother of two based in the Midwest, United States. Her mixed media illustrations are inspired by the natural world, her love of flora and fauna, folk motifs, nostalgia, sunlight and everyday life. Aitch is inspired by travels, naturalistic illustrations, Naive Art, childhood memories, legends and folklore. She creates colourful watercolour artworks on paper, characters cut out of wood, painted murals and intricate patterns and illustrations for clients all over the world.

Anne Marie Ryan works as an editor and has written children's fiction under a variety of pen names, including Bella Swift and Rosie Banks. Although born in the United States, she now lives in London with her family and a black cat (sadly lacking any magical powers).
