Niki Ellis Designs, LLC was started on a wing and a prayer! Being creative has always been in my heart; whether it's drawing, painting, knitting, anything to 'create'!

I've been an HS teacher, a basketball, volleyball and swim coach, a croupier (that's a Craps dealer, if you didn't know!), a builder of web and registration sites, but there was still something missing...

When I became a mom and watched my youngest turn into an amazing artist and start his own design business, things just seemed to click. I mean, he had to have had that creative gene from someone, right? So, I watched, learned, asked hundreds of questions (much to his dismay), watched tutorials every chance I could, went to experts .... and Ta-Da!

So now I am my own boss, own my own company and do something I love and am passionate about!

I get to let my 'creative muse' out and work with some amazing people who trust me with their dreams and visions!


"Lorraine and her team at Niki Ellis Designs have a heart for service joined to creativity without bounds. They worked tirelessly to make my vision come to life, and I'm so grateful for how gorgeous they made my books!"
USA Today Bestselling Author Angel Payne

"Working with the multi-talented Niki Ellis Designs (Lorraine Gibson) has not only been fun, it’s been exactly what I needed. As a new author – with a background in art – I may well have been her pickiest client! She listened to what I wanted and then patiently worked with me to get it just right. The end result is exactly what I’d hoped for! She’s already got the next two book covers in my series nearly finished and I can’t wait for their reveals! Thank you, Niki Ellis Designs - It's been my privilege to work with you!"
Annalise Delaney

"I absolutely love the video trailers Niki Ellis (Lorraine Gibson) has done for my last few book releases. They're edgy and draw the readers in.  She's a pleasure to work with, and I'll definitely be back for more!"
Award-winning Author Samantha A. Cole

"I am amazed and humbled by her work ethic and speed! When I went to her about a trailer she listened to what I wanted and made my vision come to life. I recommend her to all! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️star service."
