Waldine Amanda Tauch, ( January 28, 1892 [1] or 1894 [2] - 1986) was an American sculptor born in Schulenburg, Texas to William and Elizabeth Heimann Tauch.

Tauch's father was an early photographer in Texas. Beginning in 1910 she left home to train in San Antonio with Italian-Texan sculptor Pompeo Coppini and her career was intertwined with his, as student, then apprentice, then partner. Apart from two stints in Chicago (1819–1922) and New York City (1923–1935) she remained based in San Antonio. Most of her sculptural work is in Texas.
