diary

The images in this diary are taken from the book My Nature Diary, published in Gibraltar in 2008 by local artist and animal lover Christiane Fagan.

Christiane has loved being close to nature from an early age. The diary was in fact compiled by Christiane when she was just fourteen years old and over a period of three years in which she studied flowers, birds and other wildlife found on the Rock, making nature notes along the way. Most of the studies took place at the Alameda Gardens, which she frequented as a child.

The original diary was displayed at Christiane’s first solo watercolour art exhibition in 2005, with this event leading to the publication of a limited edition of her nature diary in book form.

bookmark calendar 2012Christiane’s illustrations of the plant and wildlife on the Rock can now be seen delicately reproduced on each page of this diary. The hope is that you will enjoy these illustrations every month of the year and, in doing so, recall Gibraltar’s natural heritage.
