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.

Such worthwhile life work! Never be deterred. You are undertaking a valuable, essential service/mission. The world needs more people like you. Keep sharing; this show is so much appreciated.
You are truly talented and clearly insightful, and a thoughtful listener.
You have certainly done your share of encouraging people and changing lives. I am one of the few men who attended your workshop in Cambridge, Ont. a long time ago. But I remember the faces of the women during your discussion and could see you already made a difference then.
Cheryl-Ann gives us a healthy perspective on body image which to date doesn’t come from any other source.
Cheryl-Ann spoke with passion and conviction .. her work is enlightening and life affirming!
The Beautiful Women Project sends a real message to young girls and those who have struggled for years with self image. I think it tells us that we can give ourselves permission to like and love our bodies, that we are indeed beautiful.
For the past two years, your workshop on Body Image/Self-Esteem at the Power of Being a Girl Conference has received the highest ratings with both girls and teachers in attendance. They find your style honest, engaging and humourous.
Beautiful! I haven’t been moved so profoundly in a very long time – Thank You for a wonderful experience.
For someone like myself with no previous speaking experience, your training not only prepared me to present on behalf of the local YWCA, but the stage and backstage skills that you taught will be useful to me in other presentation situations.
For someone like myself with minimal previous speaking experience, your training not only prepared me to present on behalf of the local YWCA, but the stage and backstage skills that you taught will be useful to me in other presentation situations.
Your workshops provided powerful lessons to show the women that, no matter where they have been, with self-acceptance, they can set goals and make positive changes in their lives.
What an awesome exhibit. Thank-You, Cheryl-Ann for showing women in ALL their unique beauty.
Very powerful art and excellent presentation!
I would recommend Cheryl-Ann’s presentation to any group looking for a socially conscious, spirited, and enthusiastic speaker.
You have truly captured the spirit of each woman. Congratulations on your achievements.
The Beautiful Women Project leaves all who experience it searching for words to describe what it is that has such an effect on them. They only know it is a powerful and positive encounter.
Very moving. I really enjoyed your art and these women’s amazing stories.
I am so grateful that you have created such an overwhelming tribute to the beauty of a woman’s body. Thank you so much – this has touched me profoundly.
When I found myself in a transition point in my life Cheryl-Ann was the person I reached out to. Her sound advice, coaching and perspectives have empowered me and enabled me to take on the challenges and opportunities I’ve faced with strength, a positive outlook and resilience.
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.
Your intense work has touched my heart and soul. Thank you for your amazing gift.
Cheryl-Ann’s panel speech was not only touching and thought-provoking but uplifting, laughter-provoking and motivational as well. She was the highlight of the conference!
I think this is some of the most inspirational art. I will think of these women and their stories often and I will try to remember that I am a woman and I am beautiful.
Cheryl-Ann’s sincere and skillful presentation helped all of us connect the challenges and influences in our own lives and in the lives of those we are professionally dedicated to assist.
This is a wonderful exhibit and I’m so glad that you agreed to be at the CNE and to share your creativity with us. Thanks also for taking the time to chat about the creative process.
I really enjoyed the exhibit. I hope you continue inspiring women with your art.
The presentation provided by Cheryl-Ann was captivating, and a distinctly creative way to promote positive body image…it was a powerful and positive encounter.
You have inspired many young women, especially with our small group.
Cheryl-ann and her project has and will continue to have a lasting positive impact on thousands of people in our community.
To truly love our bodies, no matter how big, how small, how uneven….that is what I wish for my two beautiful daughters. Your work has moved me in a wonderfully unexpected ways.
