Painter, mainly of landscapes. Born in Kimberworth, Yorkshire, Suddaby studied at Sheffield College of Art from 1926, winning a scholarship there. In 1935, he had a first one-man show at the Wertheim Gallery, the next year he exhibited with the Redfern Gallery and with it had a series of one-man appearances. After World War II he exhibited solo with Leger Galleries, and more recent exhibitions included Austin/Desmond Fine Art. Eventually Suddaby settled at Great Cornard, Sudbury, Suffolk and became associated with the scenes of East Anglia. He was a founder of the Colchester Art Society, with Edward Bawden, John Nash and Cedric Morris among the exhibitors. Suddaby also did poster work for Shell, designed textiles and prints and participated in the Pilgrim Trust 'Recording Britain' project.

Suddaby's work is in many public collections in Britain and abroad, including the Victoria & Albert Museum.
