Town of Paradise Weekly Update 8-23-2023

Now a proud member of the Paradise business community, Jeremy is thrilled with the incredible infrastructure improvements across the town. Working from home, surrounded by some of the very landscapes that inspire his creativity, he benefits from the cutting-edge fiber-optic connection to help him connect with clients and manage his business.

Every day, he continues to find ways to bring his unique landscape shots to living rooms across the Ridge. The process of rebirth and growth, as the community comes together to reconstruct their beloved town, presents a wealth of poignant moments and powerful stories waiting to be shared with the world. His greatest joy in it all? “The unexpected ability to forge connections with others—the collective spirit of Paradise in every interaction.”

Find Jeremy’s work online at jeremyvesely.com and locally at several shops on the ridge, including Nothing But Love and the Skyway Antique Mall.
