Aya Ghanameh is a Palestinian illustrator, writer, and designer from Amman, Jordan. She received her BFA from the Rhode Island School of Design and is currently a Designer with Penguin Random House at Penguin Workshop. She was previously a Children's Books & Gifts Design Fellow at Chronicle Books. Aya’s work moves away from state-centric ways of thinking to center the voices of ordinary people in historical and political narratives. Her debut children's picture book, These Olive Trees (Viking Books, 2023), is inspired by the experiences of her family who cultivated her love of the earth throughout her upbringing in exile.
