Leesa Haapapuro
Leesa Haapapuro was born in Detroit, MI. She earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts from University of the Arts in Philadelphia and a Masters of Fine Arts degree from Cranbrook Academy of Art in 2000. Haapapuro has been an arts educator, and member of the Dayton arts community for many years. She has sculptures in the permanent collection of the Dayton Art Institute and Wright State University.
