Sabrina Jeffcoat, owner and designer at Royal African Company Ltd. Co., was one of the top four artists selected by a juried panel put together by South Carolina Arts Commission after they released a call for artists. Jeffcoat participated in the pop-up art show presented recently by Woodforest National Bank and the North Columbia Business Association.

Jeffcoat spoke in a narrative video for Midlands Anchor, where she shared the story behind her art, including soapstone earrings and pillows and napkins made of upcycled materials. “What I hope to do in the future is to find better ways to tell stories, find better ways to show people my passions and what I find to be important about being from the South,” Jeffcoat explained. “The thing that I really focus on is using materials that are locally sourced, that are well-made, handcrafted, and also that tell the story of people of the South. Me being African-American, and as I become older, learning about the people I came from and Native Americans, I find it really important to continue to share those stories however I can.”
