Dalia's birth in Lithuania begins to explain the continental feel that comes through her work. With artists on both sides of her family all over the world, Dalia was drawn to painting, studied art, and soon became a professional.
Dalia received a BA-Fine Arts in Industrial Design from the University of Illinois in Champaign-Urbana. She later studied at the Art Institute of Chicago.
During her career as an industrial designer, Dalia invented and designed many top-selling games and toys for children. Her most famous include Lite-Brite, Hands Down, and Mouse Trap.
A professor once told her that "if you don't have a source of light in your painting, it does not have life". Ever since, light sources have been integral to her work. Her invention, Lite-Brite, particularly reflects her professor's words.
