Local Artists Series

We love local art! Each weekend we display works from a local artist.  The artwork will be displayed in our greenhouse where you can explore some of the finer things in life – art and horticulture. Most pieces are for sale, and all profits go to the artist.

Victoria Loren is a Fort Collins based photographer focused on capturing and sharing the natural beauty of the world around her. Developing her skills and love for the art from a young age, Victoria has developed a unique style ranging from whimsically fantastic to piercingly dark. Drawing inspiration from nature and dreams alike, Victoria strives to express that you can make a whole future from a broken past.
Victoria’s passion for photography was established in her teen years, inherited from her step-father who is a professional photographer. Over the last decade she has devoted her energy into perfecting her craft and sharing her creativity through her photography business, Victoria Loren Photography. Drawing on her own past hardships and the raw beauty of nature, Victoria uses a keen eye to create unique and powerful images during her editing process. The final product results in images that evoke the whole gamut of emotions.
Victoria dreams not only of speaking to her audience through art but desires to make a positive global impact. Her other company Milk Drop Galaxy, which specializes in affordable eco-friendly athletic artwear, supports Victoria’s vision to travel and be a relief worker to those in need around the world. Victoria longs for any opportunity to bring focus to fundamental, and often unnoticed, aspects of life, such as basic human contact and love for all. Through her clothing line, Victoria hopes to spread that light around the world while protecting Mother Earth and her inhabitants.
Victoria has lived in Fort Collins, CO for the past 5 years and works as a CNA during the daytime (and nighttime). She is the loving mother of both canine and feline fur babies. During her free time, Victoria explores self-expression and growth through the aerial arts, mainly practicing on the lyra. She has also starting developing her own jewelry line. Victoria’s message is to not let anyone or anything stop you from becoming your full, beautiful self. Life, even in the wake of challenge and despair, is meant to be loved, lived and cherished.
