Denise Wallace (Aleut) was born in 1957 in Seattle, Washington. She and her husband Samuel made jewelry together from 1982 until his death in April of 2010. The Wallaces moved to Santa Fe, New Mexico in 1977 so Dawn could attend the Institute of American Indian Arts. After she graduated in 1982, they opened a jewelry studio together where they made work based on the imagery and legends of Denise’s Aleut heritage.
