He has spent many years working in Broadcast Television for various networks including A&E, The History Channel, YES Network and several others.

His work in the Video Art Medium explores multiple layers and focuses heavily on texture and color. Many of the images in his works are distorted and manipulated in various unorthodox in an attempt to create a visual depth where recognizable images will appear within the collage of manipulated images and textures.

Paul J Botelho

The work of composer Paul J. Botelho focuses on the interaction between live and computer performance. His compositions include many varied works that utilize extended techniques, alternate tuning systems, as well as the interaction of new and old mediums.

He performs as a vocalist, guitarist, and pianist, often in improvisatory situations.

Jill Treadwell


Jill Treadwell began her interest in interactive media at the College of Santa Fe in Santa Fe, New Mexico where she earned her BA in Moving Image Arts. During that time she studied with video pioneers Woody and Steina Vasulka. She is currently working on a multi-media installation piece for Woody and Steina Vasulka writing prose, dialogue, lyrics, poetry, and philosophical noetics with author and publisher Melody Sumner Carnahan. Treadwell also worked in collaboration with Russell Chartier and Paul Botelho on their video piece Devil On a Dam which features her writing currently shown internationally. As Treadwell enters into her late ‘30’s she has been inspired to attempt something more mainstream than her usual experimental investigations into language with her memoir The Molecules That Surround Us which is in the process of being published. Her other publications include collaborative works with Botelho and Chartier regarding contemporary and video art: A Collection of Modern Video Artists From the Permanent Collection of Galerie Chartier and Galerie Chartier Presents a Collection of Cutting Edge Artists of All Mediums.  She also served as a panelist at the American Association of Museums Annual Conference 2008 on the topic From Consumers to Contributors: Engaging Onsite Audiences through User-Generated Content. Treadwell’s career in both global advertising, marketing and Contemporary art has lead her to her newest endeavor, co-owner and Gallery Manager of Chartier an Arts Venue.
