Miriam Dauber was born in Bucharest, Rumania in 1946. She arrived in Israel in 1958 and graduated from an art-oriented high school. She spent her military service as a graphic artist and drafts woman.
Dauber traveled to France to study at L'Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Marseilles. From there she went to continue her art studies at St. Martin's School in London. Her works were shown in exhibitions in London during the years 1967-68.
A versatile artist, Miriam Dauber also studied graphic design and theater decor. She was invited to the island of Menorca, near Spain, to participate in the reconstruction and redesigning of the ancient church. There Dauber designed a unique stained-glass ceiling. In 1969, she returned to Israel, opened a studio of her own, and began painting on antique furniture and utensils.
In 1975, she participated in a group exhibition in Israel, and her works received particular attention and admiration for their distinctive and unique form of art-nouveau.
From then on, Dauber began showing her work in solo exhibitions all over Israel with great success.
In 1977, she exhibited at "Gallery 13 1/2" in Jaffa, a gallery she is particularly fond of. She has held five exhibitions there between 1977 and 1986. In 1978, Dauber held solo exhibitions in Berlin. From 1986 and 1992, she has exhibited in Israel and the U.S.A.
