Maud Hayes, also known as Ada Maud Hayes, was born in 1889. At the age of 18, she began working as an artist's model at Howard Pyle's art institute in Wilmington, Delaware, where she became one of Pyle's most sought after models. It was here that she met illustrator and writer Frank Stick in 1906 at a party hosted by one of Pyle's students. Maud and Frank were married in 1908. The couple permanently relocated to the Outer Banks of North Carolina in the late 1920s.
