She studies glass lamp-work and photo decals at Urban Glass. Sabiti completed a fellowship at the Caribbean Cultural Center African Diaspora Institute Cycle VIII of the Spring ICA, and Digital Evolution Artists Retention (DEARCohort III) and New York foundation of the Arts Immigrant Artist Program: Visual and Multidisciplinary Arts. Sabiti was also an award winner for the Dupont De Nemours hosiery design competition for DIM Company. Her work has been exhibited and commissioned nationally and internationally in France and the U.S. in group and solo shows including galleries and museums.
