Paula Burke-Orenduff




Paula graduated from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro with a Bachelor of Fine Arts. Her concentration was in Studio Art and Design which allowed her to be versatile in classical methods of art production and digital formats. Paula continues to extend her education through professional workshops with nationally-recognized artists and designers.


Paula began teaching with an after-school art program during her college years. After graduating she began working with her family's business designing marketing materials while managing her own freelance work. As much as she enjoyed the business experiences, she was eager to back to teaching and motivating children.

Paula has now been teaching for over 11 years. A couple of Paula's proudest teaching moments was having her student's artwork being selected for display at The National Gallery of Art and the North Carolina Museum of Art.
