After experiencing a health crisis and a period of personal reevaluation, Ms. Gonzales turned to the art therapy profession in the early 2000s, seeking to use her creative abilities to help guide others through the same journey. Her current body of artwork, “Girl in the Woods”, shares a visual narrative of self-discovery and transformation.
