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.

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.
Such a Powerful, experience!! Embracing the gifts of women! Thank-You So Much!
The art and emotion displayed here is breathtaking. The celebration of a woman’s form and soul in such a straightforward fashion is a wonderful thing. The obvious care and thought put into these works is magnificent!
Featuring Cheryl-Ann Webster’s Beautiful Women Project at the 2010 CNE proved to be a tremendous success and exceeded our expectations. During the eighteen day exhibit an estimated 10,000 visitors viewed the art and not only were there NO complaints but the overwhelming feedback was extremely positive.
Finally someone who shows women as they really are!
I absolutely love the concept and I support the idea of celebrating women as unique and special individuals, because we don’t do that enough.
It is the beginning of my journey to love my body. Thank you!
Thank you for sharing your work with us! It is empowering and inspiring.
I bought ‘The Book’ and it sits on top of my dresser beside my full size mirror and it continues to remind me everyday that I AM BEAUTIFUL!
I’m really glad I participated in this workshop. I now appreciate my big beautiful body. I recommend this amazing workshop to any timid, proud, big or little women. It makes you feel good about yourself and you have fun in the process!
I love the way each woman’s true self (beauty) is captured forever in a moment in time. Very inspiring and liberating.
Your art is absolutely amazing! The messages, inspiring. You have truly celebrated women.
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’s presentations at Carleton Place High School & Notre Dame Catholic High School were considered to be the best of the day involving over one hundred presentations and performances!
Our 10 year old daughter attended the girls conference. She enjoyed it so much and it made such an impact on her! Ever since she has been talking about self esteem and body image.
It is rare to have a project of this depth come along, and I wish to thank you for sharing this with our community.
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.
Thank you for the memorable presentation at our Annual BPW Conference in Trenton and your good work with our sisters and their families.
I feel prouder to be a woman and to see others different, but like myself. The living body.
Such worthwhile life work! Never be deterred. You are undertaking a valuable, essential service/mission. The world needs more people like you. Keep sharing; this show is so much appreciated.
You have captured the lives of many and released them to create a wonderful sense of awareness.
Your beautiful women project is an eye opener and is global in reach. Any woman from any part of the world can relate with it.
Your intense work has touched my heart and soul. Thank you for your amazing gift.
Cheryl-Ann Webster’s work is essential in today’s world where images of violence pervade.
Great idea and investment in awareness about women.
It was a powerful, exciting and motivating event for everyone! The Thorncliffe Park girls brought back ideas that will likely linger and influence their entire lives.
The Beautiful Women Project sends a real message to young girls and those who have struggled for years with self image. I think it tells us that we can give ourselves permission to like and love our bodies, that we are indeed beautiful.
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 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.
Thank you for sharing your artistic talent and wisdom of words.
