Portrait of the Artist

"Shed in Field," a painting by Nathan Bertling '96.

Nathan Bertling ’96 grew up in Spartanburg with an affinity for art and a curiosity toward the divine, but it wasn’t until his college years in Furman’s art department and, later, his experiences at seminary, that his faith took form. Today, from his studio in Taylor’s Mill, Bertling quotes Bono and Robert Frost in the same breath, breaking out into phrases of pure poetry. But it’s his determination to use art to call people’s attention to what really matters, that ultimately inspires. Read more about Bertling’s journey as an artist in Town magazine.
