After over two decades as an established creative director
in retail and business-to-business communications, maureen
decided to pursue a lifelong dream—bringing characters to
life. Combining her love of words and illustration with her
passion for in-store environments, she dove into the
colourful world of character-driven greeting cards. Drawing
on her own unique joie de vivre, vast personal experience
and an irrepressible cast of animated family and friends,
she launched a lively bunch of loveable characters who
personify all that’s typically Canadian in a totally
captivating and amusing way. Playful, whimsical and
carefree, Big Mo, Barrie, Buzzie and Beau are the Canadian
Capers. They love the great Canadian wilderness, family,
friends and fun and also share a deep affection for their
equally cute distant cousins, Wildthoughts.

no-one really cares, eh. The Canadian Capers are game for
just about anything. Join them on the wild side… the
adventure has just begun.
