Having worked as Head Curator of exhibitions at many prestigious art galleries around the country, Reynolds is no stranger to fine art. Reynolds now works as a freelance curator for Filthy Gorgeous Media, allowing him to pursue his own personal love of erotic photography.
What is it about an attractive or intriguing woman that turns an ordinary man into a creative whirlwind? Beautiful women served as a muse for Bob Guccione as an artist and as a photographer. The women that are featured on Filthy Gorgeous have served a muse for photographers from the past and they continue to evoke inspiration for the future generations. All of the women that are given the title, Filthy Muse, are timeless.
Kate Simmons is a Filthy Gorgeous Muse.
The only thing fake about this sexy brunette is her name. Born as Felicity Buirski, this actor, model, and actress is better known as Kate Simmons to avid Penthousecollectors. Before being featured on the cover of the September 1978 issue of Penthouse, she was a student interested in pursuing a career in law. Her varied and impressive background includes three years of university law and by the time she posed for Penthouse, she still had a continuing interest in natural history, astronomy, and philosophy. There’s more to being well-rounded,” she once said, “than a 35-23-35-inch figure!”
Growing up, Buirski had always exhibited a multitude of passions. She even had a musical background due to the fact that she had a virtuoso pianist father and a mother who was a concert hall singer. Although she was inspired by her parents to pursuss music, her first job was as an editor of a Kent newspaper when she was 18. Then two years later, she got her start in modeling. Always aware of what was trending, Buirski started her very own art magazine, Avant Garde. It was around this time in the 1970’s that Buirski claims that she had a chance to meet with Leonard Cohen, which inspired her to take up the guitar again at the comparatively late age of 26.
Cohen’s influence is apparent on Buirski’s first album which was well received by some of the folk media. Felicity has, over a number of years, attracted a loyal and devoted following for her music. Not many would call it ‘easy listening’ despite the warmth of her voice and the simplicity of the arrangements, but somehow listening to Felicity and her songs is like coming home after a long time away – everything seems to be the same, yet somehow, imperceptibly, it’s all different. Her songs remind us that in older times music was used for more than just pleasure, as storytellers crossed the land, bringing news of changes far beyond our current horizons.
