Frida Kahlo in Pastel Abstract (2021)
Soft Pastel on Canvas
This painting depicts Frida Kahlo in abstract.
I used soft pastels to show the vibrancy of her legacy and how people worldwide are united by her story.
The image is without eyes because more than her eyes, her brows were most memorable.
Additionally, the viewer can on their own, imagine her gaze.
This photo of this Frida Kahlo in Pastel Abstract was featured in the news to promote our

About the Artist
Cheryl Vargas was born in Gary, Indiana, and grew up in both Chicago’s Cabrini Green Housing Projects and
in a little brown house in Valparaiso Indiana. She married and returned to Chicago’s Wrigleyville where she raised three sons and ultimately moved to Oak Park, IL.
A self-taught artist with a BFA in graphic arts from Concordia University in River Forest, IL, she is the Creative in Chief at Studio 928, which is the culmination of many years of melding together art, technology, and teaching into a business she and her clients love.
Frida Kahlo in Abstract Pastels (Original title: For the Love of Frida) was painted indoors, while listening to jazz. “I felt an element of risk while creating it.”
A painter, sculptor, graphic artist, and event planner she loves portraiture—primarily acrylics, but also pastels, graphite and watercolor.
Her sculpted art brings out the beauty in the very things which pollute and clutter our environment, primarily plastics and containers.
Her work life includes promoting Studio 928, teaching, and dispelling the “starving artists” myth. Cheryl enjoys spending time with her sons and her grandchildren, traveling, and visiting with friends.
From March of 2020 to the present, Studio 928 is a virtual art studio. Cheryl and her team host live online events for some of the top corporations in the United States.
She hopes to go back to a brick-and-mortar studio when it ultimately makes sense to do so.
