About me

Introduction Dr Mark Witton is a palaeontologist and palaeoartist, affiliated with the University of Portsmouth, UK. My technical research is focused on pterosaurs - Mesozoic flying reptiles - but my artwork has introduced me to a wide array of different fossil animals that are just as interesting. I work as a freelance author, consultant and artist: check out my work at, follow me on Twitter @MarkWitton, and browse my books here. Contact me at wittonprints[at] Due to volume of email I can't always reply to messages, but I do my best.
