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.

Finally someone who shows women as they really are!
I brought my daughters 5 & 11. Thank you for helping me teach them the value of self-worth in such a beautiful way.
Thank you for your outstanding day long presentation to our three hundred grade 7 & 8 girls and their leaders. I know your message will have a lasting impact. The committee was extremely impressed by your skill in being able to carry the entire day on your own. The success of the day was evident in the number of girls that swarmed you to get your autograph!
Wonderful idea and congratulations on a great job!! It’s so important to be open and an exhibit like this invites discussion – so healthy.
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.
Bless you for realistically giving a true form of so many women-you are an inspiration to us all.
She is engaging, passionate, funny and persuasive
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.
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.
…she is engaging, passionate, funny and persuasive…
The success of this event and Cheryl-Ann’s ability to adjust her presentation according to the responses of her audience were major factors in our decision to choose her over another speaker that we had considered. I would highly recommend Cheryl-Ann Webster for those who want a dynamic, professional and responsive workshop facilitator.
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.
In addition to favourable comments from the survey, several staff talked to me in person sharing how much they enjoyed your speech. So, a big THANK YOU for making our PD day this year so enjoyable and staff motivated to reach their best. On a very personal note – you are a great speaker and facilitator and it was a pleasure working with you!
What an incredible accomplishment! To see the essence of real women with the stories of their lives, loves and inspirations.
Featuring Cheryl-Ann Webster’s Beautiful Women Project at the 2010 CNE proved to be a tremendous success and exceeded our expectations. During the eighteen day exhibit an estimated 10,000 visitors viewed the art and not only were there NO complaints but the overwhelming feedback was extremely positive.
Great project, well-conceived, and I love the writing almost as much as the art!
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.
You have captured the lives of many and released them to create a wonderful sense of awareness.
Such a Powerful, experience!! Embracing the gifts of women! Thank-You So Much!
Cheryl-Ann presented a workshop which was well received … with participants rating her 5 out of 5! I recommend her as a conference presenter without hesitation.
An inspiration to all women of all ages. Thank you.
I wanted to aknowledge you for the your ability and courage to listen to and act on the wisdom that had inspired you to create this project.
Fine art at the CNE. This is a great exhibition, very informative.
Spectacular and ingenious.
One of my most loved exhibitions is Cheryl Ann Webster’s “Beautiful Women Project”. Each of the 120 clay casts of women is exquisitely hand painted by Cheryl Ann. Now to my delight I can relive the Beautiful Women Project, through the series of 3 colouring books, Cheryl Ann has created. 40 creative designs in each book for a wonderful colouring and learning experience. I feel as though I am with these women, as I colour. Thank you, Cheryl Ann!
This project is a blessing.
What an exhibit. Hurrah! Women have a chance to show their true self. We are all unique, gathering strength from our individuality. We live, we share, we love and enjoy. I do, and I loved this show.
Each time I come to visit, each time I absorb what I see and read, I’m more inspired and enriched.
Your seminar totally made my day! THANK YOU so much for the valuable information you shared with us — I’m on it!
