Tiger produced hundreds of paintings from 1962 until his death in 1967. A fullblood Muscogee Creek-Seminole, Tiger's style is said to be a combination of spiritual vision, humane understanding, and technical virtuosity but with traditional subject matter and composition.

His art can be found at the The National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, Philbrook and Gilcrease Museums in Tulsa, Oklahoma, the OSU Museum of Art in Stillwater, Oklahoma, the Five Civilized Tribes Museum in Muskogee, Oklahoma, the Woolaroc Museum near Bartlesville, Oklahoma, the Museum of New Mexico in Santa Fe, New Mexico, the Museum of the American Indian and the Bureau of Indian Affairs.
