::: MY BIO

Martha A. Wade is the founding artist and creative director of wadecreate,  and Aesthetic Circle. She creates original paintings, vibrant prints, and digital artwork. The goal of her online gallery and Aesthetic Circle blog is to bring artist and art lover together to create a unique aesthetic. Martha runs the Aesthetic Circle Blog and is always looking for great artists, poets and musicians to feature on the site. She is a former television and web producer for WGN-TV Morning News in Chicago. In addition to building her art portfolio Ms. Wade manages the Chicago Innovation Mentors - a program founded by the University of Chicago, Northwestern University, University of Illinois at Chicago, and iBIO Institute - to match new ventures with mentors. She is allot of things, but her friends know her simply as Marty.

A unique mix of strategic thinking + creative energy, Martha holds a Bachelor of Business Administration degree from the University of Michigan and Master of Arts Management degree from Columbia College Chicago.

As the proud mother of two children, Martha is always busy and striving to become a better person. She is currently living her dream as an artist in Chicago. Drawing since the age of two, then painting with acrylics and oil, this artist is not one to get attached to any one medium of creating art. Today, she paints on canvas with acrylic or oil, and on the computer with Corel Painter software and a drawing tablet. Marty says that the tablet takes her art to another level by creating digital brush strokes.

The wadecreate artwork is unique and vibrant, as she tries to create something new and different with each new painting.
