Procter and her husband Ernest Procter ARA (1886–1935), attended art schools in England and in Paris together, where they were both influenced by Impressionism and Post-Impressionism movements. They also worked together at times, sometimes sharing commissions and other times showing their work together in exhibitions. Procter was a lifelong artist, active after the untimely death of her husband in 1935. She was a member of several artists organizations, such as the Newlyn School and became President of St Ives Society of Artists (STISA) in 1966. Her work was exhibited at the Royal Academy on many occasions.

Doris "Dod" Shaw was born in Hampstead, London in 1890. At the age of 15 she moved to Newlyn with her mother and brother so that she could study at the Forbes School. The Shaws stayed with two other Forbes students, Dod's cousin Cicely Jesse and another woman artist, Tennyson Jesse, at Myrtle Cottage. At Forbes Miss Shaw met her future husband Ernest Procter; They were "were amongst the Forbes' star pupils."
In 1910 and 1911 Dod Shaw and Ernest Procter studied in Paris at Atelier Colarossi. Dod and Ernest were both influenced by Impressionism and Post-impressionism and the artists that they met in France, such as Pierre-Auguste Renoir and Paul Cézanne. In 1912 the couple married at Paul Church. One year later their son Bill was born.
