From 1968-1973, Lengyel operated Gallery West, Mendocino's first art gallery. Lengyel continued her education at Humboldt State University, CCAC, Mendocino Art Center, and College of the Redwoods. In 1980, Lengyel organized The Artist Models Association, which trained artist models and managed their job bookings. From 1979 to 1980, Lengyel apprenticed with sculptor Spero Anargyros in his San Francisco studio. Lengyel lives in the Bay Area.
