His works are owned by museums and private collectors all over the world, and they have been favorably reviewed by The New York Times, American Artist, Fine Arts Connoisseur, American Arts Collector and The New Criterion, as well as many other journals internationally. He is the author of the book THE ART OF LIFE with his wife author Traci L. Slatton.
'Sabin Howard, a sculptor of immense talent, has created some of the last decade’s most substantive realistic sculpture. When viewing his works, visitors may be reminded of the time when Donatello and Rodin walked the earth...' | The New York Times, April 28, 2002
'Sabin Howard is a sculptor whose work radiates a startling presence while finding its roots in the classical past. ...Howard mixes Roman gods with abstract forms and sees himself as a new kind of Renaissance figure-the artist-businessman with his own Medici clients. His bronze sculptures exert an outward pressure against their own metal skin, textured in pointillist marks. Formally and technically, the work is wonderfully compelling'. | James Panero, The New Criterion, May 2007
'Themes of transcendence and the art of possibility resonate in Howard's graceful yet powerful figurative masterpieces'. | American Art Collector, November, 2010
