Sitting down with Mark Hallett to learn the meaning and history of “paleo-art”

Sitting down with paleoartist Mark Hallett revealed a wealth of knowledge, not only about paleontology, but also the artists that have been bringing dinosaurs to life throughout history.  “Paleo-art is a term that fits very nicely with the type of profession I and my contemporaries do.  It’s been attributed to me, I honestly don’t know when I came up with that term… …It Caught on and it’s a good way of referring to our trade.”  Mark Hallett lives in western Oregon in a beautiful country home and gets prehistoric inspiration from the luscious landscape that exists in the Northwest.
