Roin Morigeau is a queer/ two-spirit interdisciplinary artist experiencing and investigating pain through mixed-media such as drawing, painting, installation, and sculpture. Living with physical limitations and chronic pain from a spinal injury, Roin centers their art practice as a form of protest and healing.

Their work lives in public and private collections including ARTSWA, The City of Spokane, and has been shown in numerous group and solo exhibitions including yəhaw̓ at King St. Station at Seattle Office of Arts + Culture, Whitworth University Bryon Oliver Gallery, Sacred Circle Gallery at Daybreak Star Indian Cultural Center, and the Chase Gallery at Spokane City Hall. They are the owner + curator of YES IS A FEELING, an artist-run studio and gallery in downtown Spokane centering artists whose creative/ intellectual work and very lives exist in direct opposition to the status quo and recently completed a two-year term as president of Saranac Art Projects. Roin is a descendant of the Flathead Salish Tribe of Montana and lives in occupied Spokane territories where they were raised.

Inspired by natural and fabricated landscapes, Roin is heavily influenced by contemporary artists and culture creators in their community and beyond. Some of these artists include Tavares Strachan, Jeffrey Gibson, and Satpreet Kahlon.
