Muir began her career as a portraitist and the couple often worked together. Early in their careers, they traveled throughout Europe and Latin America designing dioramas for a cruise line company, the Moore-McCormick steamship line. Her parents bought 85 acres of land at Deer Isle, Maine and asked Muir to design a home for them there. Without any official training in architecture, she designed Mainstay, which was built by Pop Joyce, a local builder. Liking the area, in 1939, they moved to Stonington, Maine and built a studio and their own home there in the 1940s. Later, they exhibited and toured together giving art classes on the Lyceum Circuit throughout the east coast. Muir primarily worked in oils, but occasionally produced sculpture, and many works in watercolor. In her later career, she produced many landscapes and views of the Maine coastline, reflecting her own interpretation of cubism, using space and light to create the faceting effects. Two of her most known works are a watercolor, Orchard Street, in the permanent collection of the Smithsonian American Art Museum and an official portrait of Senator Margaret Chase Smith which was painted for the Maine State House and is now in the private collection of Senator Smith.

Muir's connection with Senator Smith garnered her an appointment to the United States Commission of Fine Arts in 1955. She served on the board through 1959, simultaneously serving as a trustee at the Portland Museum of Fine Art. That same year, her husband, who was a trustee of the Haystack Mountain School of Crafts, which at the time was located in Lincoln, Maine and had no permanent location, suggested the school move to the Stonington area. Muir helped them locate property and reestablish the school in Deer Isle. Searching for the school property, she discovered a lot on Crockett Cove and decided to buy it and build a house on it, starting a second career in architecture. She eventually designed 46 homes in the Stonington/Deer Isle area, focusing on building modern structures which worked as showcases for the landscape, rather than the dwelling. Her sensitivity to environmental concerns were recognized by a Design International award and she was given an honorary doctorate by the University of Maine in 1969.

Care of the environment was a primary concern for Muir, and when a friend asked her what she planned to do with the three islands she owned, Muir decided to donate the properties to The Nature Conservancy as a means of preserving them and preventing overdevelopment. In 1970, she sold Russ Island discounting the price, to the Island Institute. In 1975, she donated nearly 100 acres of woods to the Conservancy, now known as the Crocket Cove Woods Preserve, and donated Wreck Island to the organization, which in turn deeded the property to the Island Heritage Trust. The Island Institute founded the Emily and Willam Muir Fund to develop programs to preserve the area, provide educational opportunities, and spur community growth.
