Crystal Anstey

Owner & Guide


Crystal Anstey is a graduate from the College of the North Atlantic Visual Arts program. She has been a visiting artist to multiple schools around the province and long been a budding amateur Chef. She also creates sculptural clay vessels and home decor with vintage and found objects. She prefers to source local and culturally significant materials and product for both her cooking and art. She lives on the shore in Back Harbour, Twillingate with her two children and Newfoundland Dog. 

“I’ve grown up here, with the sound and smell of the ocean, the beautiful landscape of Baetrix Island and some of the most spectacular sunsets that one could imagine. It’s influenced me, both in my art, my cooking and my outlook on life….”

Crystal is happy to offer a glimpse into her background and traditional lifestyle as part of Experience Twillingate.
