Lily in “Tickle Me”

My very favorite alligator “Lily”  is a pleasure to play with.  I introduced her into my work as  “The Waiter Gator” when I was the artist of the year for the Florida WineFest.

Her 3 dimensional debut came in 2012.  The alligator became a public art installation on Palm Avenue in the City of Sarasota.

Her suave figure has appeared in a number of illustrations….


Last month Lily was again cut from aluminum plate and finished as a four foot by eight foot sculpture named appropriately – “Tickle Me”.
