(1857-1945) Canadian born in Ontario, Alice Blair Thomas was largely self taught. Active as an artist and a mother, having married Richard Thomas, she co-founded the Toronto Women's Art Association and the British Columbia Society of Artists.
In 1917 she moved to Los Angeles where she became active in the local art scene. Primarily a landscape painter, Thomas also painted portraits. One of her paintings of the Rocky Mountains was exhibited in 1928 in the Berlin Museum in Germany.
Thomas is cited in several reference books covering artists in the American West.
