Anthony Flemming is a member of the Wapping Group of Artists. He is a good quality water colourist with convincing movement and sense of location who specialises in maritime subjects.

He graduated with a first class honours degree from Goldsmiths College, London in 1961, having studied painting, lithography, etching and design. Until taking up painting full-time in 1970 he worked as a designer on racing car projects for clients such as Jack Brabham and Bruce Maclaren.

His work has been exhibited at many galleries in the UK, including the Royal Academy, Duncan Campbell Fine Art, London; Cowes Gallery, Isle of Wight and Lincoln Joyce Gallery, Surrey. He has had two exhibitions in the U.S.A.

Roy Hammond was born on Christmas Day 1934 just a stone’s throw from the River Thames in London’s East End. In 1939 his family moved from their home in London for safety reasons and settled in Essex with his grandmother.

In 1955 after serving in the RAF, Roy started work for the Ford Motor Company and trained as a design engineer. In the early seventies, as a diversion from the exactitudes required in a drawing office, he started painting and realised that he preferred this way of working.

He joined the Wapping Group of Artists* in 1993 and they meet on a weekly basis, along the Thames.

*The Wapping Group is the last proper artists’ society left in England. It was established in 1946 and has over the last sixty years, faithfully recorded in a variety of styles and techniques, the changing face of the River Thames. There are currently 25 members of the group.
