Born in Christchurch, New Zealand in 1946, Wallace graduated from the University of Canterbury (Geology and Geography) and University of Auckland (Geology and Art History).
On returning to Auckland after a period of extensive travel in Europe and Africa he trained in creative metal-work at the Lapis Lazuli School of Silversmithing with Daniel Clasby (1975 – 78) and at Artworks Foundry with David Reid (1982 – 85), becoming well known as a sculptor working in bronze, a medallist, a silversmith and a jeweller.
He has exhibited widely within and outside New Zealand, and is represented in major collections in Auckland, London, The Hague and Milan.
