Jacquiline Simone Touba, Ph.D.
Dr. Jacquiline Touba is an artist as well as a sociologist and museum professional. For close to 50 years she has created pen and ink drawings of interesting sites on her world travels. After teaching and conducting research abroad for 15 years, her interest in art, education and international affairs prompted her to found the World Awareness Children’s Museum in Glens Falls, NY. After retiring in 2013, she brought her administrative skills to the Board of North Country Arts and the Glens Falls Arts District Committee. She continues her artistic and international interests by researching and drawing dancers around the world and now birds in mythology. She completed five coloring books of dance on five continents from her pen and ink drawings and is working on one of Birds in Mythology. In 2015, she discovered a new art form of watercolor batik on Japanese genwashi paper and has applied this technique to her dancers and birds in vibrant colors.
I design one of a kind necklaces with silver components collected around the world and semi-stones as well as earrings. I also do pen and ink drawings of my international travels, and a series of coloring books of my pen and ink drawings of dancers on five continents and a series of watercolor batiks of dancers around the world. Currently working on a series of Birds in Mythology for a coloring book and watercolor batik paintings which will be available in note cards as well.
