In celebration of Wool Week 2020, we have partnered with
local artist Sophie MacKinnon to launch our first ever
Australian Creator Series.
The campaign celebrates the foundations of Cable Melbourne - the humble sheep.
To support our local community and creators
in these trying times, we have come together to create a
series of custom paintings, each one as unique and
individual as the sheep featured, to raise funds for the
Country Women’s Association, who provide support to women
in need throughout Australia.
We have nine custom paintings for sale in store, with profits being donated to the CWA.
Each Cable store has one painting for sale.

ABOUT THE ARTIST
Sophie MacKinnon is an emerging Australian artist
who works with acrylics to create individual
and character-filled animal portraits and still-lifes.
Drawing on her life-long love of animals, Sophie imagines
an identity for each of her subjects which she refers to
whilst painting. Each animal brings a challenge of
capturing this character through the texture
and colour of their wool, fur or skin which she does
using a variety of brush strokes, fine detail and earthy tones.
ABOUT THE CHARITY
The Country Women’s Association is the largest women's
organisation in Australia and aims to improve conditions
for country women and children.
They reach that aim in various ways including
lobbying for change, helping the local community,
creating a network of support and meeting together
in towns and cities.
