Thomas is currently based out of LA. She graduated from the Art Center College of Design, Pasadena, Calif. in 2004. Her solo exhibitions have taken place at LAXART, New York's Mike Weiss Gallery, Patricia Faure Gallery in Santa Monica, and New Gallery/Thom Andriola in Houston. Aside from her solo exhibitions, her work has been shown at MOCA, L&M Arts in Venice, Calif., and Miami's Fredric Snitzer Gallery.

Thomas explores modern urbanism and cities in her series for RH Contemporary Art called "Landscapification." She distorts and plays with canvas, paint, enamel, sandpaper, and thread to create an abstract topographical map of Los Angeles. The series tests the boundaries of painting, sculpture, and the urban landscape with her three-dimensional pieces. The pieces are minimal in color but create a maximum impact. The juxtaposition created between the man-made and the natural in a city in one monochromatic form takes this series to the next level.
