1 and 4 Studio is the husband and wife team of artist/illustrator Don Friesen and photographer/producer Amy.

Don is an artist who was making a living as a web designer and Amy was a photographer working mostly as a producer in New York when they met.  They soon started to realize their skills could complement each other on different levels and in varied creative projects. When their daughter arrived they decided to move to Austin to raise her and simplify their lives.

Working in mixed media and Don searches for ways to visualize the constant noise from our overwhelming media conglomerates into something thought provoking and beautiful. He experiments with a variety of media, charcoal, mark-making combined with punches of colour and texture while combining traditional techniques with a digital process. While some works involve social critique, in an effort to not just be restricted to serious subjects he likes making whimsical zoo animals as well.
