March 2014 brings violinist and visual artist Mari Carlson to the Studiola!
Mari has known Alison Barker since they were in 4th grade together in suburban Maryland.
She now resides in Minneapolis with a railroad-conducting husband, a cake-making 10 yr old son and 2
cats. When not enjoying the company of these characters, she performs in classical and folk ensembles
as well as teaches violin, volunteers at libraries, reads, makes art, cooks and walks around the city.
