Self-taught landscape painter, Alice Mary Blair Pollard Thomas was born on October 1, 1857, in Collingwood, Ontario, Canada, growing up in Ontario. Her earliest works, from the 1890s, were landscapes around Toronto, Canada. She painted in other parts of Canada, during her years there, as well as in Europe, England, Scotland and India.

She lived in Nebraska, 1893-1897, but there are no extant pictures. She painted the mountains of western Washington before moving to Los Angeles. She would emphasize southern California landscapes; the High Sierra; Monterey Peninsula scenes; and Laguna Beach scenes. For twenty years, she worked essentially in watercolors, afterward in oil. Thomas helped found the British Columbia Society of Artists. (1857-1945)
