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 got my copy of ‘The Book’ and I love it. Now I need another copy for my daughter and granddaughters.
I feel prouder to be a woman and to see others different, but like myself. The living body.
It’s an amazing project, it helped alot of people who needed self confidence.
The staff remarked on the wonderful buzz of the intense discussion throughout the conference hall as students and teachers reached a new understanding around self-esteem. Your feedback rating was 96% approval for your full-day workshop! (Not bad at all for 400 students that were mandated to attend). Thank you!
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.
Great idea and investment in awareness about women.
The overwhelming response from the participants stated your presentation was the “best ever”! Your presentation and ‘hands-on’ activities where well received and extremely thought provoking.
I believe that the purpose of the visual arts is to speak and motivate everyone on either a universal or personal level. I congratulate you on the ability to accomplish both of these levels.
Your work is truly inspiring and the juxtaposition with the corset of the past is remarkable. It was a pleasure to talk to you and several of your subject beautiful women.
I was so impressed with the quality of these colouring books that I bought all my daughters a set too.
Just to let you know how inspired and amazed I was at your wonderful artist presentation. I wanted my daughter to hear you. I think your story would’ve given her encouragement.
What a beautiful thing to share…Thank-You
Your art is amazing inspired and liberating!!
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.
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!
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.
Your fluid, quick paced delivery indicated good knowledge of your topic. Your speech was interesting and you held your audience’s attention.
Awesome, wonderful, terrific. Words cannot express the emotions I experienced as I walked this exhibit.
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.
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.
Thank you for sharing your artistic talent and wisdom of words.
The success of this event and Cheryl-Ann’s ability to adjust her presentation according to the responses of her audience were major factors in our decision to choose her over another speaker that we had considered. I would highly recommend Cheryl-Ann Webster for those who want a dynamic, professional and responsive workshop facilitator.
Finally someone who shows women as they really are!
Your art is absolutely amazing! The messages, inspiring. You have truly celebrated women.
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.
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.
Cheryl-Ann, I you are a remarkable woman, helping children and others with self-confidence issues.
It is as much a work of art as it is in the words. I will look in the mirror and smile more.
Your seminar totally made my day! THANK YOU so much for the valuable information you shared with us — I’m on it!
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.
