Biography

Martha Stewart is the founder of Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia. In the 1970s, Martha Stewart started a catering business in Westport, Connecticut. She parlayed that experience into a series of best-selling books, an award-winning magazine, and her own TV show. Today, Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia is a media powerhouse encompassing print and digital publishing, broadcasting, and an expansive merchandising portfolio. Her current Emmy award-winning daily TV program, The Martha Stewart Show, is now in its sixth season, anchoring a full slate of MSLO programming on the Hallmark Channel.

Underlying Stewart's many ventures is her unifying vision of encouraging creativity and bringing stylish living within reach of all. She's been a major force in the do-it-yourself "maker" renaissance in contemporary culture and appeared on the cover of Wired's 2007 "How To" issue. Martha Stewart is also the founder of the Martha Stewart Center for Living at New York's Mount Sinai Medical Center, an outpatient facility for geriatric medicine that is dedicated to her late mother.
