She and her husband moved to Vancouver, and she began to exhibit her artwork starting at least as early as 1909 with the B.C. Society of Fine Arts' debut First Annual Exhibition at the Dominion Hall in Vancouver. Later that year she exhibited in the November exhibition of the Society, and also showed eight more paintings in the Exhibition of Pictures held by the Vancouver Studio Club and School of Art.
Examples of her work were exhibited in retrospective sections of the B.C. Society of Fine Arts exhibitions in 1950 and 1960.
She died in Los Angeles, California in 1945, according to an online web site.

"There is little need to dwell upon the work of Alice Blair Thomas, "Silver Birches,"
"The Old Cedar Tree" and others are well up to her standard."
From "The Studio Club Autumn Exhibition", by Felix Penne,
B.C. Saturday Sunset, October 30 1909
"Alice Blair Thomas is well-represented in Nos. 33 and 34; her work is too
well-known to need eulogium."
"Vancouver Studio Club", by Felix Penne

"Mrs. Alice Blair Thomas, B.C.S.F.A., is another broad worker in oil, whose
frequently large canvases convey a poetic rendering of mountain scenery. She is
equally successful in pastoral effects, while her work in water color has found
many purchasers in Vancouver."
