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 blends her passion for artistic expression, her deep interest in human dynamics, and her degree in communications to provide her clients with highly interactive, yet cringe-free, creative sessions. Her client base is diverse in age, gender and demographics but all have a common desire to better their own life and empower others.
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.
Explore – Express – Evolve
Each presentation Cheryl-Ann delivers is carefully designed to accommodate the agenda of the client and the needs of the audience. Her expertise encompasses intimate settings with survivors and therapists, to conferences with social workers and health-care providers, as well as auditoriums filled with students and educators.
Keynotes & ARTshops
45-90 minute Keynotes, either stand alone or are paired with a 2+ hour breakout session, where Cheryl-Ann delivers interactive workshops, or as she calls them – ARTshops. ARTshops provide an ideal platform, for experiential learning, for teams and individuals.
After graduating from the school of ‘Hard Knocks’ Cheryl-Ann discovered a love for learning. Now her list of accomplishments include a diploma in Art & Design, a degree in Culture & Communications, accreditaion with the International Coach Federation, and NLP Canada.
Beautiful Women Project
The foundation of the Project is 120 life-size clay sculptures, that Cheryl-Ann sculpted, of real women aged 19-91, each decorated to reflect an aspect of the women’s life journey. To accompany the art-work, Cheryl-Ann designs and delivers highly visual presentations crafted to suit the age, stage and gender of the audience.
Captivating and distinctly creative.

Wow! I felt immediate acceptance of my own breasts and my build.
You have truly captured the spirit of each woman. Congratulations on your achievements.
Congratulations Cheryl-Ann…I’m so excited for you and the new exhibit of your wonderful sculptures! How fortunate for the Southampton Art Gallery. The community will be enriched by the presence of your pieces.
I feel more normal and pretty than I did before because of the talk and pictures today.
What a beautiful thing to share…Thank-You
Your beautiful women project is an eye opener and is global in reach. Any woman from any part of the world can relate with it.
What an awesome exhibit. Thank-You, Cheryl-Ann for showing women in ALL their unique beauty.
I brought my two daughters along to empower and teach them the beauty of themselves. As teenagers they needed to read and see how beautiful we all are. What a blessing you have created in the stories you have shared. An amazing display!
Your art is absolutely amazing! The messages, inspiring. You have truly celebrated women.
This was an excellent workshop – you have done a huge amount of preparation. Thank you, Cheryl-Ann for this life-experience for my daughter, her unborn child and myself.
I had to let you know how truly inspirational you and your presentation was for me – you showed me that I am beautiful! I feel, you are directly responsible for my new life! Now it is a necessity that my twin 5 year old daughters meet you! As I don’t want them to grow up with a negative body image!
I think that the disins are reolistik [sic].
I have just read ‘The Book’ from cover to cover absorbing every word.
I was also one of the presenters at the youth symposium. I sat in on your presentation and loved it. Great Job!
What a wonderful concept. A celebration of each woman for what she is, not what people think they should be.
Cheryl-Ann was hilarious, the best public speaker I have listened to.
Your ability to not only create but truly ‘see’ who these women are is phenomenal.
When I first met Cheryl-Ann I immediately felt comfortable with her warm sparkling personality. It didn’t take me long to trust her and with her support I felt empowered to be the best version of me.
Thank-You so much for the creativity and thought behind these magnificent sculptures and the idea for the project. I found that certain ones I loved for the art work while others I loved for the words expressed and others for what they symbolized.
Cheryl-Ann legitimized the need for us as professionals to take good care of ourselves through times of challenge and change, and you empowered us to become better at being supportive and empathetic towards each other and most notably the people we serve.
Cheryl-Ann, I you are a remarkable woman, helping children and others with self-confidence issues.
A kaleidoscope of dazzling colours, capturing the essence of femininity from the inside out…a true celebration of women.
I truly appreciate your speech and your workshop, and what you SAID today has had a great impact on how I FEEL and definitely will direct what I DO in the future of my work and my life.
Your exhibit is very inspiring and reminds me to be true to myself throughout challenges, change and pressure from others.
Your seminar totally made my day! THANK YOU so much for the valuable information you shared with us — I’m on it!
Thanks for a very informative workshop on Body image and self-estime. Our girls need to hear more of this type of workshop.
A true eye opener for all ages and gender. Thanks.
You make a difference that will affect all those after us and those after them!
As a person who has suffered all her life with body image and suffered from low self esteem and the ridicule of many people who I have come in contact with, your work has inspired me to remind myself about who I am, and that my body is special.
Very Spiritual and beautiful!
