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.

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.
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.
As a person who has suffered all her life with body image and suffered from low self esteem and the ridicule of many people who I have come in contact with, your work has inspired me to remind myself about who I am, and that my body is special.
Thanks so much for creating such a wonderful tribute to women and our many forms.
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.
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.
When I found myself in a transition point in my life Cheryl-Ann was the person I reached out to. Her sound advice, coaching and perspectives have empowered me and enabled me to take on the challenges and opportunities I’ve faced with strength, a positive outlook and resilience.
Very touching…a breath of fresh air.
Your artwork is truly amazing, soulful and inspiring. Thank you for reminding us that all women are beautiful works of God!
Beautiful! I haven’t been moved so profoundly in a very long time – Thank You for a wonderful experience.
Life giving! Thank you.
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.
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.
I am so enjoying being creative with the colouring pages. I blend colours and smudge over the lines to create my own stories.
You changed my thoughts of myself – thank you. This will help me accept me, so I can help the children I work with accept themselves.
We found Cheryl-Ann’s presentation to be very informative, her message inspiring and her style engaging, effective and honest.
Cheryl-Ann’s presentation was vivid, intelligent, and witty.
Thank you, I admire your courage and I commend you for presenting this. Your work goes deeper and it is very effective.
Very powerful art and excellent presentation!
Very moving and truthful.
Thank you so much for this inspirational, healing interlude. A place to let women’s hearts sing and dance.
The Beautiful Women provide so many teachable moments with youth, seniors and everyone in between about what self-acceptance looks like. The most important lesson is we much champion this cause every day with each other, because our world profits from encouraging us to think the opposite.
Your fluid, quick paced delivery indicated good knowledge of your topic. Your speech was interesting and you held your audience’s attention.
Wow you have changed lives for the better for so many. Thank-You for being such an instrument.
Wowza! What was my most rapturous moment of the day?? Discovering that I too can somehow relate to these faceless beauties!! I have been inspired from the intensity in which this brilliant project has penetrated me. Blown Away!! The results of spending so many hours with so many amazing women is unreal. Beautiful work and I couldn’t be happier to have stumbled across it. Thank-You so much for doing what you do I am surrounded by beauty and wisdom that I will hold onto for many years.
I have just read ‘The Book’ from cover to cover absorbing every word.
A game-changing creativity challenge with the talented and intuitive artist If you want to stretch, to think differently, to grow – she’s your girl!
Thank you for inspiring women and girls across the nation.
Cheryl-Ann is an engaging and well-prepared presenter whose multimedia lecture highlighted the myriad messages society sends about physical appearance and how this information influences women’s self-worth.
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.
