Shannon Len, 29, founded Len Designs Jewelry while in Hawaii. Now in Morro Bay, Len also runs the Art in the Park at Dinosaur Caves event in Shell Beach. Based on a market she saw while living in Australia, Len started the event at age 23 to help local artists showcase their work. “Much of my inspiration and supplies have been accumulated through my travels,” she says. Now with an average attendance of 5,000 and 130 California artists, the Shell Beach fair runs the first Sunday of each month, May through November. Engaged to Todd Lewis, Len also coordinates art fundraisers and volunteers with the Live Oak Music Festival.
