“I had the honor of photographing San Antonio icon and living legend Teresa Champion back in 2018 for my BARE Artist portrait series. I have known Teresa and the Champion family for several years now and this incredible woman, artist, mother, and teacher never ceases to amaze me.”


“Teresa has a long history here in the Alamo City and has performed in venues all over the world. She is also credited with bringing the art of flamenco to San Antonio, Texas. A local native, Teresa’s artistic journey began when she was only 6 years old and has continued, in full force, well into her 80s as she continues to teach at her school, Teresa Champion Dance Academy.
