Gail Jones Sundell

Gail Jones Sundell has expressed her creative passions through the medium of stone carving for the past four decades, with her work evolving to a combination of stylized and realistic figurative sculptures. While primarily self-taught, she has gained insights from sculptors who frequented her family’s business, Colorado Alabaster Supply. Influenced by her father’s stories and paintings of his early life growing up among the American Indians in Oklahoma, Gail was inspired to carve her own interpretations of American Indian folklore, mythology, and family life. She says, “Bringing life to stones that are hewn out the earth is a very challenging and rewarding experience. Every stone has a potential story to tell.”
