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.

Fascinating. We all think “this is wrong: too big, too small” etc, but this shows that we are all “just right”
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.
Cheryl-Ann Webster’s Beautiful Women Project is an effective catalyst for generating discussion on body image, a topic which is relevant not only for women and girls, but increasingly for all of us.
An amazing and self-affirming display. Thank-You!
A wonderful tribute to the “body beautiful” whatever the age, shape or size!! Also, a moving account of life experiences we enjoyed it very much.
Great insight to an issue that needs to be addressed at various levels.
Teacher candidates in particular learned that the arts are a powerful vehicle for the expression of challenging and difficult social issues. Thank you!
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.
Very moving and truthful.
The workshop was so inspiring and I believe I will take the positive body image tools I worked through and played through today, to love my body. To nurture and care for my precious body in a respectful, loving and kind way will save my life.
My 5 years old twin daughters look through your book ALL the time and it has created a visual for them confirming what my husband and I have always told them that is “everyone looks different under their clothes but we are all beautiful” that’s out of the mouth of my five year old babes! How exciting!
Very powerful art and excellent presentation!
An amazing and self-affirming display. Thank-You!
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!
What a mission. So wonderful to see real women and to read about their stories, both happy and sad.
Cheryl-Ann gives us a healthy perspective on body image which to date doesn’t come from any other source.
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 was so impressed with the quality of these colouring books that I bought all my daughters a set too.
A few years ago my life came to a turning point. Cheryl-Ann was the one I seek out for down to earth advice. With her coaching I was able to come out of the valley of doubt and deal with life’s challenges, including starting a new career overseas.
What a beautiful testament to our humanness, our sameness and womanliness.
Gracious, compassionate and sensitive to the needs of others Cheryl-Ann has a clear vision of what she believes we should be free to experience in our lives… and she has acted on those beliefs in a positive way that is changing lives for the better.
A kaleidoscope of dazzling colours, capturing the essence of femininity from the inside out…a true celebration of women.
Your ability to not only create but truly ‘see’ who these women are is phenomenal.
Cheryl Ann Webster was a highly captivating speaker and held her audiences attention and interest throughout the entire day.
Very beautiful, very inspiring and excellent way to make people specially women to accept the way they are. They are all beautiful.
This is the most touching, moving beautiful exhibit I have ever seen.
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.
So powerful. I have never seen such beauty…truly an inspiration. I loved walking around with my daughter reading the different stories….touched our hearts.
Brilliant, profound and life giving.
I am so inspired by you, your work opens the eyes for a lot of us women to know how beautiful we are. You have changed my life. I now feel like the ‘Little Engine that Could.”
