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!
Congratulations on the wonderful impact you are making.
Great insight to an issue that needs to be addressed at various levels.
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.
Numerous comments in the guest book mentioned the Beautiful Women Project as the reason visitors had attended or returned to the The Ex. They thanked the CNE for bringing the sculptures and complimented us on displaying such a high caliber of art….During the 18 day event an estimated 10,000 visitors viewed the Project. The Project proved to be a tremendous success and exceeded our expectations.
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!
During the 11 week run of the Beautiful Women Project, an unprecedented number of visitors came to see the sculptures and attended workshops and talks presented by Cheryl-Ann.
You have inspired many young women, especially with our small group.
It is the beginning of my journey to love my body. Thank you!
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.
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.
Your artwork is truly amazing, soulful and inspiring. Thank you for reminding us that all women are beautiful works of God!
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!
Her entertaining and informative workshop helped us understand, as parents and adults working with youth, the impact that our words and actions can have on young people and their choices.
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 so much for this inspirational, healing interlude. A place to let women’s hearts sing and dance.
The students who filled the lecture hall were attentive and responsive. Cheryl-Ann’s presentation style and humour suited her audience, and the information she shared stimulated many questions and comments. The feedback I received later from the class was very positive.
Your seminar totally made my day! THANK YOU so much for the valuable information you shared with us — I’m on it!
What a wonderful concept. A celebration of each woman for what she is, not what people think they should be.
Cheryl-Ann’s presentation was vivid, intelligent, and witty.
To have related with so many women must be a miraculous experience. Each piece says so much. Each women’s story is relatable. I’ve taken a lot out of this wonderful show and I will hold many of these life lessons with me. I did not expect this to come of my day and I feel inspired and full of joy to be one of many to see your work. Not only BEAUTIFUL but insightful. Thank-You for giving all these women a story. I have nothing else to say that can tell you how much enjoyment I got from this gallery. I wish only love and luck to you.
Gracious, compassionate and sensitive to the needs of others Cheryl-Ann has a clear vision of what she believes girls and women should be free to experience in their lives, and she has acted on those beliefs in a positive what that is changing lives for the better.
Thank you for sharing your artistic talent and wisdom of words.
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.
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.
Such a Powerful, experience!! Embracing the gifts of women! Thank-You So Much!
What a beautiful, inspiring work.
‘The Book’ is filled with artfully disguised wisdom. It has helped all the recipients for which I bought it as a gift: a psychcologist in the UK who specializes in treatment for women with eating disorders, a teenager with a medical problem, my two daughters and my son in law. It was much appreciated. Thank you.
I feel more normal and pretty than I did before because of the talk and pictures today.
Proof that no 2 body types are the same.
