Rowena Meeks Abdy (April 24, 1887 – August 18, 1945) was an American painter who flourished in Northern California in the early 20th century. Working in oil, watercolour and charcoal, she achieved prominence in the en plein air painting school and is held in several permanent collections of significant museums. She had significant interactions with other famous California artists such as Armin Hansen and Arthur Frank Mathews.

Weeks was born in Vienna to wealthy American parents, with whom she moved to San Francisco at age three. Although crippled at birth, she proved motivated as a young girl and enrolled in the Mark Hopkins Art Institute in her early teens. There she studied under Arthur Frank Mathews.
