120 Sculptures Celebrating Reality ? 120 Stories Empowering Change
The Beautiful Women Project highlights the importance of comparing ourselves to what’s natural and real, while critically viewing the impact of social ideals. The Project endeavours to remind the world that naturally beautiful bodies come in all shapes and sizes, with lumps, bumps, and scars too! The foundation of the Beautiful Women Project is 120 life-size clay sculptures of real women aged 19-91, each decorated to reflect an aspect of their life journey. These 120 Sculptures have been exhibited 12 times across Ontario Canada. Now based in British Columbia, the Beautiful Women Project is looking for new places to exhibit in the near future.

I was moved by the pure beauty and ‘realness’ of who we are – WOMEN ! Thank you
It seems to amaze me more and more the need for self esteem and awareness, to share, to support, to speak, to live a life meant for changing the world to be a better place.
I feel prouder to be a woman and to see others different, but like myself. The living body.
These are gorgeous unique and wonderful! Truly a creative and touching way of celebrating each woman and all women. We really enjoyed the exhibition.
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.
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.
I brought my 13 year old who thought it would be “icky” but once Cheryl-Ann welcomed her and explain the work she really enjoyed it! Thanks for making us feel normal
