She is the recipient of the Honourable Mention Award - Philip Morris Group of Companies Singapore Art Award (2001) and her works are in individual and corporate collections in Singapore and overseas.

Ng draws inspiration from the simple and seemingly mundane, transforming objects in nature into abstract monoprints of lively rhythms and exquisite harmonies exploring the relationships between form, colour, and space. Her works convey a sense of calm and meditative silence, a welcome oasis of calm and quietude so often missing from the vagaries of urban life. Movements and forms are captured excellently in the layering of chromatic and rich textures of the printmaking process.
