Local artist and Frisco newcomer Zahra Jahanyfard recently memorialized Pete Hosp in a portrait, which is now on display at the Frisco Heritage Museum.
Ms. Jahanyfard was born in Iran, but moved to the U.S. in 2007, when her husband got a job in Lexington, Mo. When they moved, she had no knowledge of English, but found painting to be a way she could connect to the community and those around her.
Ms. Jahanyfard and her family moved to Frisco eight months ago, but she has already gotten involved in the community. She is currently the director of education for the Frisco Fine Art Gallery, as well as a member of the Visual Arts Guild of Frisco and Frisco Arts. She teaches art lessons at One River School of Art + Design. In her spare time, she paints for her personal collection, as well as commissioned pieces and portraits, such as the piece for the Hosp family.
