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.

A kaleidoscope of dazzling colours, capturing the essence of femininity from the inside out…a true celebration of women.
A beautiful and inspirational look at not only the female figure, but the human soul.
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!
Inspiring & motivating and just the right amount of humour to convey the message that “We do make a difference”.
What a beautiful testament to our humanness, our sameness and womanliness.
Truly inspiring, enlightening and beautiful. Something everyone should be aware of and something everyone should & could be touched by.
I had no idea how beautiful and intense this exhibit would be. The stories of all these strong, inspiring and beautiful women was worth more than I can say. Thank you for sharing; continue spreading love, peace and beauty.
Cheryl-Ann addressed a large group of female students with ease and candor… Our students were moved and inspired to a new level of understanding. We could not have asked for a better speaker.
You touched my heart and made me feel beautiful, not in a man’s perspective, but my own, and I don’t think I’ve ever felt that before. Thank you so much.
What a wonderful concept. A celebration of each woman for what she is, not what people think they should be.
Cheryl-Ann is an inspiration to all whom cross her path. I feel blessed to have had the opportunity to learn about myself in an environment that was safe and accepting.
A powerful, exciting and motivating event for everyone!
What a beautiful thing to share…Thank-You
Great insight to an issue that needs to be addressed at various levels.
I think that the disins are reolistik [sic].
Cheryl-Ann used research and empirical data related to her Beautiful Women Project to raise questions about how the focus on physical appearance affects women’s goals and aspirations and she suggested ways to mitigate the impact of this bombardment.
I am in tears after reading and looking at your beautiful website. It is so wonderful and what you are doing is splendid, creative, caring, quirky, clever and simply magnificent.
You have truly captured the beauty and essence of the female body and spirit. The media often degrades women, sexualizing the female body. However, with The Beautiful Women Project, you showed that women are intelligent, courageous and beautiful. The Beautiful Women project has made me feel especially proud of being female. This pride will stay with me forever.
This workshop offered me the opportunity to express my creativity through the emotional process with other women. It made me feel truly womanly. I am a woman and proud of it!
Today, you lifted me up. I have been longing to be a professional settlement counsellor and today you brought me closer to my goal.
We found Cheryl-Ann’s presentation to be very informative, her message inspiring and her style engaging, effective and honest.
Wonderful idea and congratulations on a great job!! It’s so important to be open and an exhibit like this invites discussion – so healthy.
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!
Bless you for realistically giving a true form of so many women-you are an inspiration to us all.
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.
This is the most touching, moving beautiful exhibit I have ever seen.
Very moving and truthful.
Amazing!! We need to learn to accept ourselves no matter what age or size or shape. Live our lives and enjoy each day since each day is a gift.
I enjoyed this and it helped me accept myself more for who I am, not who I want to be. Thanks!
Fine art at the CNE. This is a great exhibition, very informative.
