Martha Stewart, founder of Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia and Emmy Award-winning television show host, entrepreneur and best-selling author, is America’s most trusted lifestyle expert and teacher. Millions of people rely on Martha Stewart as a source of useful “how-to” information for all aspects of everyday living – cooking, entertaining, gardening, home renovating, collecting, organizing, crafting, holidays, healthy living and pets.
Her namesake company, Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia, which she founded in 1996, reaches approximately 66 million consumers across all media platforms each month and has a growing retail presence with 8,500 products in thousands of retail locations. In addition, the company offers television and video programming, award-winning magazines, best-selling books, innovative websites and apps.

Raised in Nutley, New Jersey, in a family with six children, Martha developed her passion for cooking, gardening and homekeeping at an early age. Her mother taught her the basics of cooking, baking, canning, and sewing; her father introduced her to gardening at the age of three. Martha earned a bachelor’s degree in history and architectural history at Barnard College. Upon graduating, she became a stockbroker on Wall Street, where she gained her early business training. After moving to Westport, Connecticut, in 1972, she developed a catering business that showcased her remarkable talent and originality. Her unique visual presentation of food and the elegant recipes she created for her catered events were the basis for “Entertaining,” published in 1982. “Entertaining” was the first of 78 books, including bestsellers such as “Martha Stewart’s Baking Handbook,” “Martha Stewart’s Homekeeping Handbook” and “Martha Stewart’s Cooking School.” The latter inspired the weekly television series, Martha Stewart’s Cooking School,on PBS. It is the latest addition to MSLO’s expansive portfolio of television programming, which over the years has been recognized with 18 Emmy Awards.
The Company’s merchandising offerings include the Martha Stewart Living line of home-improvement products at The Home Depot, the Martha Stewart Collection of home products at Macy’s, the Martha Stewart Home Office line with Avery at Staples, Martha Stewart Pets products at PetSmart, Martha Stewart Crafts at Michaels and Jo-Ann Fabric & Craft Stores, Martha Stewart Clean with Hain, among others.
