Courtney Family Collection: The Art of Receptivity

There are very few people whose souls exude understanding, empathy, compassion and are an avenue of light for the loves in our lives that we have lost here on earth.  Tannis is one of those souls. I lost my son in a motorcycle accident at the early age of 34 this past year.  Losing a child is having your heart ripped out and a bottomless black void now exists.  I ached with grief to know that he was okay.  Tannis was that avenue of light that let Michael talk to me. Tannis was commissioned to do 3 pieces for my family.  One for Michael’s wife, one for my other son and one for myself.  She truly heard Michael and each piece reflected Michael’s love, relationship and message to each of us.  My husband’s ashes were also incorporated into my son’s and my piece.  Without her knowing Michael came to me as a hawk and in my piece is an outline of a hawk.  My other son’s piece from Michael was called sediment.  Tannis had no previous knowledge of the fact that my other son is a geologist.  Her professionalism, compassion and energy in these pieces has brought peace to us through this tragic time.  On the way to hopefully finding some sort of peace and acceptance of my and my family’s loss Tannis has been an angel.

Receptivity expresses in many forms. Sometimes you feel it, sometimes you hear it, and sometimes it dances behind the background of your life with quiet power.
