Cheryl-Ann Webster, aka The Creative Speaker, transformed her life from a high-school dropout with no place to call home, and seemingly no prospects, to a university educated, award-winning artist, speaker, and facilitator. Today she is the Executive Director of CiiAT – The Canadian International Institute of Art Therapy.
Cheryl-Ann Webster is also the creator of the family-friendly Beautiful Women Project, an art installation that is accompanied by presentations promoting body confidence while raising awareness on the impact of body-shaming. Deemed a “revelation of truth”, her Beautiful Women Project has been showcased in 12 communities with 70,000 visitors viewing the exhibit and hearing the message of self-acceptance since 2006.
