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.

I bought ‘The Book’ and it sits on top of my dresser beside my full size mirror and it continues to remind me everyday that I AM BEAUTIFUL!
These are gorgeous unique and wonderful! Truly a creative and touching way of celebrating each woman and all women. We really enjoyed the exhibition.
As Cheryl-Ann predicted the Project increased our visitor numbers resulting in greater revenue, with more than 25,000 visitors representing six continents, passed through our doors during the Beautiful Women Project exhibit.
You have captured the lives of many and released them to create a wonderful sense of awareness.
I feel prouder to be a woman and to see others different, but like myself. The living body.
Very empowering! I am glad I brought my 17 year old daughter and her boyfriend. They too were enlightened. At a few points I needed Kleenex for tears, and a sweater for chills.
We strongly recommend Cheryl-Ann Webster to any group trying to make a positive effect on the self-worth of young women.
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.
Love the concept, the idea, the power, the beauty. The image of women together tells their stories and journeys through life. Stunning display. It lets the world see that women are more then thing’s appear to be.
Your work is truly inspiring and the juxtaposition with the corset of the past is remarkable. It was a pleasure to talk to you and several of your subject beautiful women.
We found Cheryl-Ann’s presentation to be very informative, her message inspiring and her style engaging, effective and honest.
Cheryl-Ann is a consummate professional who knows how to get right to the heart of the matter. I appreciate not only her candor, but her thoughtful and compassionate approach to allowing me to experience all that I wanted in my coaching sessions.
Bless you for realistically giving a true form of so many women-you are an inspiration to us all.
My 4 yr old son loves his Beautiful Women colouring book! He loves the patterns, shapes and challenge of filling each page with beautiful colours. I love that he is learning by osmosis that beautiful women come in all different shapes and sizes, with their own fascinating and unique stories. A great lesson at any age!
Thank you for the memorable presentation at our Annual BPW Conference in Trenton and your good work with our sisters and their families.
Thank you, I admire your courage and I commend you for presenting this. Your work goes deeper and it is very effective.
Beautiful, Amazing, Breathtaking. I am overcome by emotion. Tears of joy, tears of sadness. I have felt 120 different emotions.
Very moving and truthful.
Wow! I felt immediate acceptance of my own breasts and my build.
Remarkable project. Congratulations CNE for finally displaying such high caliber art.
What a beautiful thing to share…Thank-You
The most inspiring project I’ve ever seen, so beautiful.
Thanks so much for creating such a wonderful tribute to women and our many forms.
I have just read ‘The Book’ from cover to cover absorbing every word.
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.
Very moving. I really enjoyed your art and these women’s amazing stories.
The students who filled the lecture hall were attentive and responsive. Cheryl-Ann’s presentation style and humour suited her audience, and the information she shared stimulated many questions and comments. The feedback I received later from the class was very positive.
What an incredible accomplishment! To see the essence of real women with the stories of their lives, loves and inspirations.
I really liked these sculptors because it helped me better understand my body.
Thank you for bringing the Beautiful Women Project to the world. I know it has changed my life as well as the lives of many others.
