Alethea Mary Proctor's life as an artist encompassed more than half of the twentieth century. She studied at the Julian Ashton Art School with fellow student George Lambert, with whom she was to be closely associated in public and private over the next thirty years. Thea worked in watercolour and pencil almost exclusively and held responsiveness to new ideas as one of her central responsibilities as an artist. It was a duty she took seriously all her life. "I have told students it is only by keeping an open mind that one's taste can change even unconsciously and it is a most exciting experience to realise suddenly that one has a new taste", she said - at eighty-five.
