Hailey Lind is the pseudonym of two sisters, one an artist, the other a historian. One half of Hailey is a skilled muralist and portrait painter who has run her own faux finishing and design business in the San Francisco Bay Area for nearly a decade. Before pursuing art full-time she worked as a waitress, an ethnographer, and a family therapist. Hailey's other half has taught in France and all over the U.S., and has published extensively on American women's history. She currently lives in Virginia with a motley menagerie of rescued dogs and cats.
