When Dr. John and Jamie Peacock built their Dothan, Alabama, home in the summer of 2014, they had a vision for not only its functionality, but that it would be lived in and loved. Jamie describes their style as “very traditional with a bit of modern flair.” But it isn’t just about fine furnishings. Almost every piece in the home has a story connected to it.
Fish Girl • Artist Ann Rudd

Ozark, Alabama, artist Ann Rudd is one of these figures. But even for those who think they know Rudd for her still life paintings and garden art may not be aware of the subject matter that has entranced this artist for the past decade or so.
