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 brought my daughters 5 & 11. Thank you for helping me teach them the value of self-worth in such a beautiful way.
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.
It is the beginning of my journey to love my body. Thank you!
Cheryl Ann Webster was a highly captivating speaker and held her audiences attention and interest throughout the entire day.
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.
I really liked these sculptors because it helped me better understand my body.
Cheryl-Ann’s coaching style is where art therapy and life coaching collide.
On behalf of the Eating Disorder Program I would like to Thank you for an excellent presentation which was inspiring, empowering, and refreshing.
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.
A powerful, exciting and motivating event for everyone!
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.
Thank you, Cheryl-Ann for a wonderful experience today – for your insightful ways and for making learning so much fun!!
I would recommend Cheryl-Ann’s presentation to any group looking for a socially conscious, spirited, and enthusiastic speaker.
An inspiration to all women of all ages. Thank you.
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.
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.
Great project, well-conceived, and I love the writing almost as much as the art!
Beautiful! I haven’t been moved so profoundly in a very long time – Thank You for a wonderful experience.
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.
Very powerful art and excellent presentation!
In hosting this exhibition, the Cambridge Centre for the Arts was proud to be a partner with the Cambridge YWCA and provided us with the opportunity to then work with additional partners including Soroptimist International and the Arts Guild…. It is rare to have a project of this depth come along, and I wish to thank your for sharing this with our community.
Thank you, I admire your courage and I commend you for presenting this. Your work goes deeper and it is very effective.
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.
Your Beautiful Women Project is brilliant, beautiful and of such great importance – it is such a contribution to woman-kind.
This is what I’ve always been waiting for, but perhaps didn’t know it. Thank you for giving us – our kids, our public, our community – a chance to finally see real women. You are a true artist, and an inspiration.
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.
Truly inspiring, enlightening and beautiful. Something everyone should be aware of and something everyone should & could be touched by.
How wonderful that we can learn to accept our bodies as these women have it opens the door to my soul.
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.
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.
