Artist Kerri Knapp


Kerri Knapp Cedarburg

I've always had a passion for painting. By age three, my first "masterpiece was a watercolor painting on the side of my dresser. I continued to immerse myself in art through every possibility in high school. During my college years, I discovered that earning a living doing what I loved was more difficult than I had hoped, so I pursued a field of study in a different direction. I graduated from UW-Madison in 1984 with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing. I worked for ten years specializing in Oncology Nursing.

During this detour from my professional artistic career, I devoured books on art and painting techniques. I was self-taught, and I continued to enjoy smaller painting projects for family, friends, and myself through the years.

I officially established Change Your Scenery in 2001. Change Your Scenery is now a successful, fully insured painting business located in Cedarburg, Wisconsin that blends my interest in art and my passion for painting. I have since taken several classes in decorative painting, stenciling, cabinet & furniture painting and fine art. Every year, Change Your Scenery enjoys working with about 75% repeat clients and 20% new clients from past client recommendations. From a simple color change on a wall to an elaborate mural, Change Your Scenery can personalize your space. Please allow me to continue to inspire the creative journey within your home or office!
