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.

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 knew when I read the course outline that this would be what I needed and wanted. I was not disappointed. It helped me open up to me and let the inner me seep out.
Fabulous! True acceptance: knowing and loving ourselves.
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.
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.
What a great presentation Cheryl-Ann did for our staff meeting…I think one of the greatest comments came from one of our staff for whom life has not always been fair, it was like the sun was shining – just for us that day!
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.
These are gorgeous unique and wonderful! Truly a creative and touching way of celebrating each woman and all women. We really enjoyed the exhibition.
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!
Your Beautiful Women Project is brilliant, beautiful and of such great importance – it is such a contribution to woman-kind.
Proof that no 2 body types are the same.
A true eye opener for all ages and gender. Thanks.
The message it has taught to so many is to love who you are. This is a beautiful thing and children, men and women can all learn from it!
I really enjoyed the exhibit. I hope you continue inspiring women with your art.
Thanks for showing real beauty.
It’s an amazing project, it helped alot of people who needed self confidence.
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 way that is changing lives for the better.
I live in the U.S. — Norfolk, Virginia — but am prepared to visit Canada to see your work. Thank you for doing this creative, meaningful project!
Wow! I felt immediate acceptance of my own breasts and my build.
I love the way each woman’s true self (beauty) is captured forever in a moment in time. Very inspiring and liberating.
Amazing and unforgettable.
Your ability to not only create but truly ‘see’ who these women are is phenomenal.
I think the sculptures are graet espesily the one with brail!! [sic].
How wonderful that we can learn to accept our bodies as these women have it opens the door to my soul.
Your work has helped me in my process of self-acceptance and feminism.
Your message is really very inspiring. You are definitely inspiring me towards getting the Woman of Excellence Award. I would love to stand up there one day without my wig on and receive such a prestigious award.
Heart opening, heart-wrenching, heartfelt.
Cheryl Ann Webster was a highly captivating speaker and held her audiences attention and interest throughout the entire day.
What an exhibit. Hurrah! Women have a chance to show their true self. We are all unique, gathering strength from our individuality. We live, we share, we love and enjoy. I do, and I loved this show.
